just a bit on the day i had with crouch valley Dan sd member
Dan sorry for putting you in the spotlight
So he has the wildfowl shooting rights in Essex on part of the river crouch.North Fambridge side. within the North Fambridge Yacht Club so gated access only.
i arrived at 5:15am the other day and meet the other guns tim.243 also came along. Dan then gave out his what he expected to be on the marsh and what not to shoot for any guns that have not shot wet birds before so job done ,we were led out across the marsh and given our hides and settled down to the waiting game lots of duck, teal, Wigeon, grey geese calls and time to practice my returning calls
well the seagulls liked it,lol.
two shoots fired then the marsh woke up kin'el, it lit up fast soon it was all go greys came in first the mallard duck n' golden plovs all manner of opportunities to fill the bag some had it off while others were not so lucky being new to the wild fowling game and not being able to tell the hight and speed in the semi dawn light.
The weather should have been rain with 30,mph wind as it turn out Essex decided not to play the rules as set down by the bbc weather man !! the wind drop'd and the sun came out, so the birds gain all the hight .by then i had filled my boots with what i wished to shoot and done the walk back to the yacht club cafe' and a very nice slap up full English and tea was the order of the day.
So a big thank you to Dan and his helper for a brill outing on the marsh
now it comes down to this, Dan advertises this on Guns on Pegs so there is a fee and you will need to contact him to find out the cost, worth it you bet it is, this is some of our best wetland on the Crouch is well sort after by KWC Wildfowlers. infact i am a member and so were two others, so it tells you that with all the shooting KWC has we still wished to come here to shoot wildfowl !!! I know KWC have try'd to gain this marsh and offered to pay buckets for it. No its Dan's so if you wish to have a go and also watch a red deer farm just over the other side of the marsh fill your boots pm him .nothing is given that the birds will come flooding in but as high tide came so did the birds for us.
ps this is not a sale add but if the boss's think it is sorry its not ment to be and ajust/remove .
