Not advisable however as you'll be under the watchful eye of the WWT tower and that entire area is designated as an SPA therefore your cheeks might well be getting hauled off to sit on a jail bed for disturbing the barnacles.....
Sorry mate but thats just not true at all as I shoot that area quite a bit, its also on the day ticket of solway wildfowlers. You cannot cross powhillon farm to reach the marsh but you can take a long tricky walk up the tide there. I would just like to know from other people who shoot there how far i can 'push it'.
But people who know dont like to share the info and attract others it would seem.
And there is no law againstdisturbing barnacles.

SPA designation: http://www.jncc.gov.....aspx?page=1980
The whole secrecy thing around that part of the Solway is because the BASC and Solway Wildfowlers Association have an agreement with WWT to restrict and not promote wildfowling in the area.
SWA and BASC agreement:
How do we know - because we farmed Powhillon and have fought the WWT and the nature reserve for the last 30 plus years. Your question DIDO.1 was how far can you push it and all we're saying is there are consequences if you get within viewing distance of the tower.
Don't believe us then push right up the foreshore to Powhillon (which is permitted), sit under the tower and take your chances. One last thing, bring down a couple of those Barnacle geese for us while you are there and enjoy because it is an amazing wildfowling spot!

If as you're saying you are shooting within the Powhillon SPA/SAC then all we can say is WWT have gone soft........
