The Kent Wildfowling and Conservation Association has been successful at auction in buying land adjacent to the River Beult in the Weald of Kent. The land consists of riverbank, pasture and woodland.

KWCA Chairman Alan Jarrett said: “This is a valuable addition to our landholding. As well as providing additional year-round rough shooting for members it also allows us to increase the offer we can make to our growing fishing section.

“We believe diversity is the key to success for a large wildfowling club in a modern world. Our offer now extends well beyond foreshore wildfowling to encompass a wide variety of sporting offers throughout Kent and into East Sussex, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

“2012 is becoming another successful year for the KWCA, with several land acquisitions under our belt and more to follow.”
