Langstone Harbour is situated in south east Hampshire. The Langstone And District Wildfowlers And Conservation Association was formed in 1956 as a democratic co-operative of locally based working men intent upon upholding a four hundred year old tradition of sustainably harvesting wildfowl, a plentiful and naturally renewable resource.
The Association leases and manages a large acreage within the bounds of the harbour, much of which is designated as un-shot refuge areas.
Langstone Harbour is home to large numbers of wintering wildfowl and waders, and is, together with neighbouring Chichester Harbour, one of the major wintering resorts on the south coast for both quarry and non-quarry species.
