Description

Presented by Lord Derby

This is an exciting chance to visit England’s most southerly grouse moor and see “behind the scenes” on a wildlife safari with Richard Bailey, the experienced gamekeeper.

Spring is the best time to see wildlife in the hills, and the management undertaken for grouse shooting at Crag Estate has created a fantastic environment for a whole host of breeding birds.

Crag Estate is run on a “no burn” policy, relying on innovative cutting techniques to deliver a shootable surplus of grouse in an area with very high levels of public access. Weather dependent, winning bidders will enjoy close encounters with broods of grouse and waders from the keeper’s vehicle without disturbing the birds, taking front row seats for a really stunning natural spectacle.

Lucky visitors also stand a chance of seeing the rare and enchanting ring ouzel! Remember to bring your camera and binoculars for this memorable morning.

To be taken by arrangement with the donor in the spring of 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: All successful bidders will be notified immediately on completion of the Sale by email. To secure the Lot, payment should be made within 7 days of the notification.

Payment can be made on the website through Paypal, these payments will be subject to a small surcharge. Alternative arrangements can be made to pay by cheque, payable to 'The Heather Trust', or by direct bank transfer.

IMPORTANT: To avoid causing difficulties for the donor, we expect the buyer to take up a lot at a mutually convenient date within twelve months of the Sale.
