More than just a day's shooting

The Allerton Project is a research and demonstration farm that studies the effects of different farming methods on wildlife and the environment.

Across the 320 hectare mixed farm in Leicestershire, the project has been instrumental in developing agri-environment scheme options that are now adopted on farms across the country, such as beetle banks and supplementary winter feeding. In fact, it’s thought that some 80% of the habitat options in the modern agri-environment handbook are derived at least in part from research carried out by the GWCT.

The project’s research has focused on songbirds, and has proven the effectiveness of the combination of habitat management and creation, winter feeding, and legal predator control, the ‘three-legged stool’ approach central to game management.

This approach led to the number of songbirds on their estate increasing by 150% in the first 8 years of management. The shoot is run according to the highest standards in accordance with the Code of Good Shooting Practice and was recently gained the Aim to Sustain Game Assurance accreditation.
