BasC success story for wildfowling consents
BasC’s wildfowling team has helped 13 wildfowling clubs in England and Wales to secure shooting over 11,000 acres of foreshore and inland marsh in the past year.
the agreements, which were in place for the start of the current season, include stretches of coastline in East anglia, on the mersey and Severn Estuaries, the river roach and inland on the ouse and Cam Washes.
among them are 10-year consents on 285 acres of the mid-Essex coastline and on eight sites totaling 111 acres within the ouse and Cam Washes. Crown Estate leases for 15 years have also been renewed on mersey Estuary SSSi and on undesignated areas of the Severn Estuary.
BaSC’s Wildfowling officer, mark greenhough, said: “i am delighted that BaSC’s wildfowling team has again been able to help affiliated clubs secure leases, consents and opportunities for wildfowling. By providing this support BaSC can ensure that where wildfowling takes place, it is carried out with a sustainable and responsible approach.”
