Today I attended West Wycombe Park for the Dovecote Park charity clay pigeon shoot. Another fantastic day of simulated game for the 20 or so teams of 4 that shot over 5 stands with 80 birds being released on each stand.
Some great shooting had by all and over £20,000 raised for The BDCI (Butchers’ and Drovers’ Charitable Institution) The charity exists to provide support for those who work, or have previously worked, in the meat industry but have fallen on hard times, regardless of their circumstances. Widows, dependants and children may also be eligible for assistance.
For those that attended and are eager to see the images they will be online later this week. Please sign up to my Sporting Picture page to get an alert when the images are ready either by Facebook, Twitter or WordPress by clicking on the relevant application on the right.
E J Churchill set a fabulous course and great entertainment was had with the exploding clays on the bolting rabbit and teal stand.
In the meantime here’s a great picture of Sir Edward Dashwood shooting a blazing bunny and Micky Rouse who entertained us today with their incredible shooting skills.
Thanks to all the E J Churchill staff and competitors for making it such a fantastic day to photograph.
