  1. At last! I was starting to think I was the only one that wasn’t completely taken with this book. Arthur Cadman Wildfowling Tales is always my go to book
  2. We see a fair few Garganey in the summer months. The Cotswold Water Park near Cirencester is a real hotspot for them and many other waterfowl. The recent years have seen them stay later and later into autumn. Last October I encountered a small pack whilst sat fishing on a large gravel pit so there is every chance of a mistake being made! Several European countries still class them as legal quarry species.
  3. Would it not be steel proofed?
  4. There is no walked up just wildfowling. Not necessarily decoying mostly flighting, ducks and geese. It’s worth doing a Try Wildfowling Flight to see if it’s for you
  5. I’m in GWCA. What would you like to know?
  6. Neither are currently taking members but Gloucestershire will sell you an accompanied day ticket. Details are on the Club website or the BASC Permit Scheme Booklet
  7. Some interesting numbers and detail in this document upto 1965 https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/00063656809476173
  8. We get them on the Severn still, but in greatly reduced numbers. It probabably averages around the 100 mark recorded in Slimbridge each season but they have previously been recorded in the 1000’s. At least 1 usually ends up in the bag of a lucky GWA Member each year and like most Marshes they are now considered something of a Holy Grail down here. For anyone interested in Whitefronts on the Severn one of our previous Chairman wrote a book on them https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wild-Geese-Newgrounds-Paul-Walkden/dp/0956107001 Got to be worth the less than £5 asked of anybodies money with an interest in geese
  9. Fen Tiger I never for a minute took it that way and apologise if I came across that way. I too was looking to put a different view based on my personal experiences. Already people are taking a guess on which Club this is and that can’t be good. In my opinion if your making such a statement on an open forum then you should be prepared to back it up with fact. It’s not about shaming anyone. We’ll perhaps have to agree to disagree.
  10. Some great advice and thoughts in the three posts above. Most of which I agree with. The one thing I can’t agree with is that naming the Club concerned is in anyway futile. I accept we all see things differently and that may be the case here but whilst that Club remains anonymous it remains subject to unfounded rumour without the right of reply or the chance to defend its actions. Roll on 1st September!
  11. If you honestly believe yourself and others have been mistreated by this Club then surely you should name it and save prospective members problems in the future?
  12. I’m in Wiltshire and Fowl on the Severn with Gloucestershire WA all the info is here http://www.gloucestershirewildfowlers.co.uk/ feel free to drop me a message if you need more info or a chat
  13. Despite having had many dogs over the years I always find it incredibly sad at the loss of anybody’s fowling dog. They are all special, just remember the good times

    Very surprised you’ve not heard back from Gloucestershire WA though it is a busy time of year for Club officials. Try a message through the website http://www.gloucestershirewildfowlers.co.uk/ if that doesn’t work or you want to know more drop me a PM for details
