11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Location: Priory Water


The Leicestershire Wildfowlers Association (LWA) have kindly donated an evening’s wildfowling to young shots. Those attending will have the opportunity to shoot an evening flight for inland wildfowl from a hide under the supervision of an experienced mentor. Before heading out, we will meet at the LWA Priory Water nature reserve where an introduction will be given followed by a presentation on wildfowling and species identification. Do not miss out on this unique opportunity!
