Think of nesting birds before pruning your hedge | garden

Alys Fowler’s article (Who says you can’t prune trees in summer?, 8 July) did not make the most important point of all: that generally there should be no pruning of hedges, shrubs and trees during bird nesting season, from March to September. Even if there are no nests where the pruning is actually taking place, it can cause distress to birds nesting and feeding nearby, which may result in them abandoning their nests.
