Charles Grisedale Owner Cefngwyn Hall and Lapwing Conservationist
Nick travels to Wales to meet Charles who runs possibly the finest duck shoot in the country. However, Charles is also the founder of the Cambrian Lapwing Recovery Trust and Nick wants to hear more about that. The trust was set up in 1999 and has managed to make at least some small contribution to the conservation of this beautiful bird.
Charles Smith - Jones - Author and wildlife management expertWe are joined by Charles Smith-Jones, an all round countryside man who specialised in wildlife management after completing a full military career in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Charles is the author of four countryside pursuit books which I recommend to all our listeners. They are packed with useful information and accompanied by a large library of photographs. Well worth having one, or more, on your coffee table!
Nigel Sampson - Founder of Holme Farmed VenisonA Yorkshireman who fell in love with deer whilst working on the Isle of Jura, Nigel is playing a key role in the countryside pursuit arena by bringing game meats to the general public. His passion for farming and game has enabled him to create a professional nationwide distribution network of game meats into retailers, the public, supermarkets and hospitality sectors alike. We need more people like Nigel to champion the sustainability of British game.
