Fieldsports Britain – Roy’s crackdown on greys

Save a red – shoot a grey. Is this Manchester United vs Norwich City? Nope – it’s Roy Lupton’s conservation call to the nation and it’s all about squirrels. The airgunners of Anglesey did it. They successfully shot all the grey squirrels on the island and made it safe for red squirrels, which are doing well there. Airgunning groups from Cornwall to Cumbria are trying to do the same. Roy is at it in Kent. No hope of bringing back red squirrels in the short term, but his work should save a few trees and songbirds. Plus we look at British bowhunting and join Gary Rawlings as he goes to South Africa after kudu and warthog. We have an exclusive offer for Olight torches, David is on sab-watch on the News Stump and Charlie names the top Hunting YouTube channels in the world in this week’s episode of #FieldsportsBritain
