Walk this way for evening event

Teasses Estate near Ceres is the venue on Thursday, June 13 for all those interested in finding out more about how a country estate successfully combines sensitive wildlife management, a thriving game shooting enterprise and a productive farm.

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is hosting the event by kind permission of Sir Fraser Morrison. Teasses is an excellent example of how effective habitat and predator management along with careful feeding and release strategies can produce some of Fife’s finest pheasant and partridge shooting.

The event, starting at 6p.m., will give you the opportunity to take an evening’s walk through the estate with GWCT senior advisor Hugo Straker, Teasses manager John Stewart and head keeper Kenny Horne. The guided tour will focus on effective game habitat management including game crop choice and placement within a productive farming landscape. The evening will end with a delicious barbecue supported by Teasses Estate. The event has been sponsored by RM Welch & Son Limited.

Cost per attendee is £12 and to book your place, send a cheque (with your contact details including telephone number) payable to ‘Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust’ to GWCT, Unit 95, Perth Airport, Scone, Perthshire PH2 6PL.
