Scottish Woodcock Shoot

When the rest of Europe freezes in winter, woodcock head for the west coast of the British Islaes where the gulf stream keeps the land warm and allows them to probe in the mud for worms. That makes the west coast – from Cornwall through Wales and Ireland to the Scottish Highlands and Islands – a massive destination for woodcock shooters. We are on the Ardnamurchan peninsular for three days’ shooting this amazing bird, plus trying out the new Blaser F16 shotgun.
