On reaching the main marsh at appox 3.30pm i quickly picked out a Little Egret. While doing a quick wildfowl count i saw two 4x4's pull up by the central stream. They then drove past me and pulled in to the field after the two bends nr the old maggot farm site. I then witnessed them shooting wood pigeons i couldn't hang around long but they put all the birds on the reserve in the air.I think i recognised one of the shooters as local Highgate farmer Mr Seels who's cattle help keep the reserve in check cant say the same for his guns. Just about emptying it.
