One of the places I love to walk is the cemetery near to my house. It is a wilderness of old graves, foxes, wrens, woodpeckers, sparrowhawks, owls, squirrels, brambles, beech trees - at least it was. It's being tidied now, smartened up, cut back, regimented. We used to pick pounds of blackberries here, now they've gone, complaints are being made about the foxes, squirrels - will they soon go too? I'm sad.
