Allargue Estate is the 2014 Joint Gold Award Winner of the prestigious Purdey Awards for Game and Conservation. The Estate’s long-term project to restore 500 acres of mature conifers on ex-Forestry Commission land to heather is an excellent example of heather restoration providing good habitat for game and wildlife. An afternoon’s walk on the Estate offers you the perfect opportunity to see first hand the remarkable improvements that have been made to wildlife habitats and how sensitive tree removal can benefit a number of species including black grouse, lapwing and curlew.  Read more

Shooting for the Future: Shooting Skill

Location: Ripley Castle, North Yorkshire
Date / Time: 8 May 2015

Recent GWCT research has allowed us to develop guidelines for gamebird release that maximise broader conservation benefit, while minimising any damage caused by the birds themselves. By following these prescriptions shoots also maximise the health and welfare of their pheasants and partridges, thereby ensuring good returns and high-quality sport. Improving woodland and cover crop habitat for pheasants and partridges can make a big difference to the results obtained by a shoot. There is also great potential for improving conservation value to a broad range of other wildlife. All of these issues will be addressed during the morning presentations, and this will be followed by an in-depth afternoon visit to a working shoot, to set the full context.  Read more
