Being a person with a very limited countryside background, both my friends and family believed it was an odd decision to choose this course. However, I believe it was the right thing to do.
From day one I have enjoyed each and every day of the course and it seems that everyone else has also done so. Each day (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) the group turn up at 9am. On most days we start off with a theory lesson and we are currently studying the various Game Species and their Ecology.
On Monday afternoons we take part in Practical Estate Skills. As part of this unite we have built a fence at the college orchard, done some hedge laying and are currently working on building pens for housing pheasants and partridges.
