Fieldsports Britain – fabulous pheasants among friends

You can’t beat the banter on a shoot day. Andy Crow, Jason Doyle and Charlie Jacoby head to Bedfordshire for the Jack Pyke pheasant shoot at Paul Childerley’s place. Expect laughter, tears, and watch David shoot (with commentary from Crow). That’s the fun part of this week’s show. David is on the News Stump and then we get serious. It’s the RSPB AGM this Saturday and we ask the question: does the RSPB want to take over from the UK’s gamekeepers? Britain’s biggest bird charity is picking up gamekeeping contracts at the same time it is briefing against gamekeepers in the media. Plus there’s the great crowd of animal rights activists sticking the knife into gamekeeping whenever they can. Charlie has Hunting YouTube, rounding up the best hunting videos on YouTube this week and completing this week’s #FieldsportsBritain

Here is the RSPB statement:
Kate Jennings, the RSPB’s head of sites conservation policy said: “Nature is in trouble. We all want a countryside that is protected, cared for and vibrant with wildlife. Gamekeepers can play an important role in helping some species of conservation concern to recover, as we all work to try and reverse the shocking declines seen in populations of birds, mammals and other animals.
“Unfortunately, the actions of some individuals in the shooting community mean that we still have a problem with illegal killing of protected wildlife in some areas. This activity has been rightly condemned by everyone who cares about our countryside wildlife, including many gamekeepers.
“Most gamekeepers continue to play an important role in supporting wildlife, and we will strive to work with and learn from them in future.“
