The report suggests volunteers were burning gorse and scrub. Surely this is against all good practice, advice and general guidance in relation to breeding birds. Dartford warblers would be on eggs amongst other species.
Madness despite any good intentions.

The planned burning appears to have been in February, as in the last paragraph.
It used to be Jan or Feb in the New Forest, years back.
