Letter: Our rural friend

Sir: My view is a vast East Anglian landscape, but just two fields. One is set-aside, whilst in the other the landowner is ploughing out a bridleway for greater arable acreage.

Thank God for such folk as Jake Fiennes with his field margins, high hedges and brooder crops ("The game of life", 22 March). Will the keeper, once the countryman's worst enemy, turn out to be his best friend?
