Sun 3rd Jan

The cold weather continues, in fact over here on Islay, perhaps it is only starting to bite in. On the same tack I was reading with interest that BASC has brought out a shooting ban to come into effect from Tuesday 9am. It only comes into play when there has been 15 days of continuous severe weather conditions and basically bans the shooting of all ducks, (including reared duck,) Snipe, Woodcock, Golden Plover, Greylags, Pinkfoots and Canada Geese, but excludes game birds, if memory serves me correctly. The last time this ban was in place was 13 years ago.
