Fenland Wildfowlers Association carry out nine mile litter pick
Members of the Fenland Wildfowlers Association (FWA) collected a huge pile of rubbish from the Wash coast between the River Nene and River Great Ouse at the weekend.
The team collected an assortment of rubbish, plastic waste and even an old lorry wheel from the nine mile stretch of foreshore.
The FWA was formed in 1952 by a group of active and knowledgeable wildfowlers and has managed the shooting on the foreshore between the rivers Nene and Great Ouse for the last 70 years.
It has 250 members, is affiliated to the British Association for Shooting & Conservation and is one of the best known and most professional wildfowling clubs in the country.
The FWA also owns and manages some 200 acres of the intermittently flooded Hundred Foot or Ouse Washes – some in partnership with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust.
