Guest Lord B

I have heard of free passes to shoot geese on Lindisfarne, aquired via the trust who run the place. Does anyone shoot there or have any experiance of of the place and the offer?

 

Thanks

Dont know about free passes but it was in the BASC magazine about passes costing £50 per season I think but dont quote me cos my memory not that good but I remember thinking thats good value for a full season.

Surely someone lives near there.

Found some Lindisfarne details in a countrymans weekly. The shooting is controlled by Natural England, and run on their behalf by local wildfowlers.

Permits are £51 for a season, and this pays for a professional warden who offers advice to newcomers he meets on the shore. To apply,you need a form. To obtain a application form, send a sae to Lindisfarne Wildfowl Management Group,

c/o 42,Barnston,

Hope this helps?

Home > Whats New > Archive > New wildfowling warden for Lindisfarne

 

26th August 2004………………………………………….immediate release.

 

 

 

 

Following in the footsteps of George Ashcroft who has retired as Lindisfarne wildfowling warden after 11 years on the post, is Colin Teago, a Lindisfarne man born and bred.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colin, a keen wildfowler, has worked for the Scottish Wildlife Trust, the National Trust and most recently Scottish National Heritage in Loch Lomond, in a series of conservation related positions. As a mature student, Colin completed a Bsc in Countryside Management at Aberystwyth University and currently chairs his local Wildfowl Management Group.

 

The position of wildfowling warden at Lindisfarne runs from August to February and so Colin will be on hand throughout the season to answer any queries 'fowlers or visitors to the area might have. He is also there to police nearly 4000 hectares and is keen to meet any new permit holders to help them understand the rules of the site and how to get the best out of their visits.

 

Permit application forms can be obtained by sending a request and a self-addressed stamped envelope to: The Permit Issuing Officer, 42 Barnston, North Seaton, Ashington, Northumberland NE63 9TY.

Colin Teago can be contacted on 07803 228 415

ENDS.

 

NOTE: For more details call the BASC press office on 01244 573031

Do you think it would pay for you to send Colin an apple John to help your application. :clapper:
