Webber’s Wildlife Services is a reflection of owner Martin Webber’s hobbies, interests and career. Martin is a professional countryman and has spent most of his working life employed in gamekeeping, wildlife management and conservation. Martin now offers rustic experiences to those who have an interest but perhaps know little or nothing about country life and the kinds of earthy, hedgerow crafts that are second nature to him.
In Martin’s formative years, he relied on whatever books or articles he could find on field sports, and prominent amongst the authors was Ian Niall. Niall was born in Old Kilpatrick, he moved back to Galloway at eighteen months old, and the area formed a basis for his early fiction. He was a prolific writer on shooting, gamekeeping and fishing. At the same time, through his writing, he managed to capture forever a form of rural life which has, mostly, disappeared. Martin will be inviting people to accompany him to learn a little about some of the old ways of the gamekeeper/poacher, always accompanied by at least one canine helper and inspired by the works of Ian Niall and the Wigtownshire countryside.
