The Area

The jewel in the Altcar Estate’s crown is our unique resource for wildfowling. It has been estimated that 30,000 - 40,000 geese roost and feed in the North West of England during the winter months as part of their southern migration from Iceland. The Altcar land is used for the arable farming of potatoes, barley and other crops which makes it a very attractive feeding area for ducks and geese.
