Grampian Police to raise awareness of lead shot

Grampian Police will be visiting popular coastal shooting areas over the coming months to raise awareness of the use of lead shot.

Wildfowling takes place in Scotland between the September 1 and February 20 (depending upon species) where certain duck, geese and wading birds may be lawfully shot.
