Wildfowler rescued on Hoo peninsula
A wildfowler got cut off by the tide and had to be
rescued by an RNLI lifeboat.
The person, who has not been named, was walking on Stoke
saltings on the Hoo peninsula during the high tide at 3.15pm on
Wildfowlers conserve areas of land for hunting birds.
Medway Coastguard and
Sheerness RNLI inshore lifeboat were called to assist and the
person was brought back to the shore by the lifeboat.
Cllr Alan Jarrett (Con), chairman of the Kent Wildfowling and
Conservation Association, said: “There are a lot of areas of Stoke
saltings that are above the water line so I imagine this person
must have just got cut off at high water.”
