Ever wonder where all the birds that escape the shooting season end up in the summer? Well, on a recent trip to the Scilly Isles I spotted numerous pheasants and partridge sunning themselves on Tresco! A long migration of 30 something miles from the UK mainland to Scilly or maybe they hop on the Scillonian?
Only joking! The Tresco Estate owned by the Dutchy of Cornwall is leased by the Dorrien Smith family who run their own shoot on the island. For those that have never been to the Isles of Scilly I’d strongly recommend it. It really is heaven on earth and the Tresco estate and the Abbey Gardens are breathtaking!
I just need to get back there now for the shooting season…. Hmmmm….
