Wendover, UK. 9th April, 2021. Tree surgeons working on behalf of HS2 Ltd fell trees in Jones Hill Wood, ancient woodland which is said to have inspired Roald Dahl, for the HS2 high-speed rail link. Tree felling work began this week, in spite of the presence of resting places and/or breeding sites for pipistrelle, barbastelle, noctule, brown long-eared and natterer’s bats, following the issue by Natural England of a bat licence to HS2’s contractors on 30th March.
