A spokesman for Kent Po­lice said: “We re­ceived a call at 3.44pm on Au­gust 15 from some­one who re­ported that they could see two men shoot­ing birds and ducks at Sin­gle­ton Lake, in Bucks­ford Lane, near Ash­ford.

“The per­son who rang didn’t see any weapons but heard ‘crack­ing sounds.’ Ap­par­ently fish­er­men at the lake said the men were shoot­ing at pi­geons.

“An­other wit­ness saw a cat­a­pult and what may have been an air ri­fle al­legedly hid­den un­der one of the men’s cloth­ing.

“A de­scrip­tion of the men varies from teens to early 20s.

“Po­lice at­tended and con­ducted a search of the lakes and sur­round­ing area but the in­di­vid­u­als weren’t found and no dead birds or other wildlife were found.”
