Woods used for shooting tend to have greater wildlife biodiversity than unmanaged woods because they have more shrubs, better surrounding hedges and more glades and rides. However, concentrations of pheasants and red-legged partridges can reduce biodiversity in and sometimes around release pen sites. Sustainable gamebird management is based on minimising biodiversity loss and balancing it with improvements elsewhere. These guidelines are based on findings from several GWCT studies undertaken over the last few years.
