This is for anyone running a Shoot. It's regarding what plants and trees make good cover for wildlife and game. The wood that I'm restoring used to have a flighting pond in it. The pond is now almost choked with crud like Willow and Birch; that's not the problem as I can sort them out with the swing shovel Part of the flight path, for want of a better description, has Laurel growing down it. Some of the limbs are thicker than bigbird67's thighs. Is Laurel of any use as game cover? I can't think that there's much by way of food on the wretched plant. The only animals I have ever seen under it were two Muntjac.
