We had a big and broad patch of wild growing blackberries. We hat left this for the birds and as a winter resting place for the hedgehog. Now this blackberry patch is bare on the inside with only little life on the outer branches. There are now birds nesting in it and the winter is over long enough that the hedgehog is active again, so we decided to take the blackberries out. Luckily we have a big flail mower which can do that.
It was mainly bare and hat only little life in it
