Fieldsports Britain – The Glorious Twelfth 2020

 

We have grouse, fox shooting and the most popular night vision kit in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain. Packham doesn’t give a stuff about moorland communities. We do – and we are finding out how important the Glorious Twelfth is to the people in them. Look out for wonderful Daisy. In the South of England, Roy Lupton has a problem with foxes digging into his paddocks and taking fawns. He sets up one night with a duvet and thermal gear to thin the numbers, with success. And if you are interested in night vision, we reveal the results of our thermal and night vision survey – what kit Fieldsports Channel viewers use when it gets dark. Charlie puts out the best hunting videos via this week’s Hunting YouTube and David – or ‘Bob’ as we now call him (following his long-overdue haircut) – is on the News Stump. On the first day of the shooting season, surely this is everything you could want to watch?
