Fieldsports Britain – Death to Squirrels


Ollie Williams picks up his shotgun to go squirrel shooting. After the success of shooters clearing the island of Anglesey of grey squirrels to make way for the reintroduction of native red squirrels, Ollie is part of a Cornwall-wide effort to do the same in England’s most south-westerly county. Plus he is doing local songbirds a favour. Another shooter with protection on his mind is Fieldsports Channel viewer Nigel Appleton. Last year, he went on David’s Wright’s film school course – and now he has put his new skills into practise with a film about shooting crows, rooks, jackdaws and jays. Plus deer manager Paul Childerley explains what makes a great muntjac head. David is on the News Stump leading on Scotland’s sale of trophy hunts, there’s the last ever Bargain Hunter, a minute of Liam Stokes from the British Game Alliance, an introduction to new night vision kit from Pulsar, and Charlie has the rest of the world covered in Hunting YouTube. It’s all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
