Greenland white-fronted geese have arrived back at the Dyfi estuary, their main wintering ground in Wales. Local wildfowlers first spotted the geese on the estuary on the 25th October. Since the 1970s wildfowling clubs on the estuary have been protecting the geese with an effective voluntary moratorium on shooting.
Two introductory days, designed to provide a taste of countryside activities for women and Young Shots, will be held by BASC in Wales during August and September.
BASC has welcomed the Welsh Natural Resources’ Minister, Alun Davies’ decision to continue a voluntary moratorium on the shooting of Greenland white-fronted geese.
BASC has welcomed a decision by the Welsh Government to withdraw proposals for highly protected marine conservation zones that would have banned wildfowling by default.
