5 days from €1,490
The district is divided into 2 area, one is hilly moorlands, while the other is typical English farmland with woods and fields divided by living hedgerows.

Depending on the time of year, the shooting can be over different crops (oilseed rape, wheat and barley) or over stubble depending on where the pigeons are feeding at the time.
