|Date||Number of birds|
The Lees Court Estate Project aimed to discover whether a large commercial pheasant shoot, releasing a substantial number of reared birds, could simultaneously improve wildlife including wild breeding pheasants.
Before the Project’s start, the in-house farm was typically modern, with arable ploughed to the field edges, fields block-cropped for convenience, and hedgerows cut annually and often sprayed along the base for weed control. Woods were used primarily as sites for release pens.
Lees Court Estate is easily accessible by car from either the M20 or M2 motorways.
