R.Caen, Horsey Island, Braunton Marshes

I have noticed a big difference in the behaviour of waders,wildfowl & gulls in these areas since the shooting season started. The birds are very nervous indeed, easily disturbed even at distance, & terrified of man because they think they are going to be shot at.

I do wish this barbaric activity was outlawed once & for all.
