Bid now for a truly unique wildfowling experience

Sealed bid Auction: Three days’ guided wildfowling at Lindisfarne, with food and accommodation for two Guns. Proceeds to benefit BASC’s Young Shots Wildfowling events.

Once again, BASC’s wildfowling department, Newcastle Wildfowlers Association and the legendary Sir Johnny Scott are offering a lucky bidder and a friend the chance to experience a fully guided wildfowling trip on this iconic, Purdey Award-winning part of Northumberland’s coastline.

The lot includes accommodation and meals at The White Swan Inn in Lowick for three nights, and fully guided morning and evening flights for three days, all in the company of Sir Johnny Scott and his wildfowling friends during the peak shooting time.

Bird counts last year had numbers of wigeon at over 24,000 and pink-footed geese at around 15,000. This really is an opportunity not to be missed – competition will be high, as will the bids, so dig deep for this great cause.

Bid estimate: £1,500 – £2,000

The dates of 3-6 of October are fixed due to the tidal requirements to make the most of the fantastic opportunity.
