Alentejano wickets

What is special about alentejano wickets is that they have five or six rather than three stumps. Another specific feature is that their main purpose is not to be part of a cricket game. Alentejano wickets are there to help making the life of wild steppe birds easier, to prevent them from being systematically blocked by sheep fences. Fences are needed to manage grazing pressure. And with this system suggested by the ICNF, we are trying to reach a balance with what steppe birds need. We remove the bottom half of the grid between the stumps, to allow them to cross without having to fly. Now, don't be surprised if, at some point in the future, you cross some Sainte-Marie-La-Mauderne cricket players...
