In England and Wales, the lead shot regulations ban the use of lead shot over all foreshores, specified SSSIs, and for the shooting of all ducks and geese. This applies even if you are shooting under the terms of the General Licence.

In Scotland and Northern Ireland, the use of lead shot is only permitted away from sites designated as wetlands.
