im very fortunate to have access to a small part of a tidal marsh where a mate has the grazing rights,last season i dabbled down there in the early mornings tide permitting and this was my first taste of fowling..........,im now a fowling addict !

i rough shoot with the farmers brother-in-law who had a small shoot on the adjoining farm and it was him that put me onto evening flighting duck. I have been feeding a splash on the marsh now on and off due to work commitments and also getting out ferreting and hawking since the season has begun.

i have had mixed success with teal and widgeon being shot over the splash and the odd mallard whilst walking out to it.my mate assures me once the weather hardens off the widgeon come in in big numbers.....i look forward to it

heres some pics and i'll try and update as the season draws to an end.

the splash, a gutter runs along side it and thats where i lay in wait

Looks like a piece on the outskirts of Hendy.
Am I right?

Good to see the young ones involved. Keep it up!

Nice Pics and looks like you are having some good sport on it, as a wildfowler i am not a fan of feeding, this to me is more like flighting ducks then wildfowling BUT each to there own. Just be careful that your farmer friends has the shooting rights ASWELL as the grazing rights as in most cases they are not leased together. ATB

No worries, it's nice to look at a thread and see someone has taken the time to do a nice write up and ad photo's of there trips wildfowling ... than some just plonking a photo on and just say shot these today and that's all they say , i like to here and read about other fowlers out and about, also takin the time to show the young ones how to go on after all they are our future and without them i feel wildfowling will be a thing of the past .... ....
