Farmland

Brown hare image - original RBF website

 

Outside of the urban centres much of the lowlands of the North East region is still given over to agriculture. A large number of the region's most important nature conservation sites are found as part of working agricultural land but the farmed landscape also contains a number of widespread features, such as hedgerows and cereal field margins, that support a number of declining species such as the brown hare and the linnet.
