If anyone is a member of a shoot who tags their birds on release (or at least some of them), and would like to get involved in a study to increase numbers of wild pheasants in conjunction with GWCT, please drop me a PM. We're NOT asking for any money, but just that a researcher can come out to shoot days to collect samples from the shot birds and chat with the keeper about management practices.

Please feel free to circulate this request to any other shoots you may be aware of who could be interested.
