Just curious, but who has taken all five of the legal corvids (carrion crow, rook, jackdaw, jay and magpie) in one day? I have shot four out of the five many times but never got them all in one day.

Good question. Id be very surprised if anyone has done this , very difficult to achieve.

Ive shot crow, rook and jackdaw same day as have most people.

Ive had jay and magpies same day.

i have done it :) several years ago now . i was out shootin as usual , shot jackdaw and jay
early on in the day, followed by magpie and crow :yes: then i realised what i could do.
all 5 corvids in a day :o all i needed was a rook :D had to go to 2 differant permision's but
i got it and completed the set B) :D B) never done it since :( but i have shot 4 many times.
the jay is the hardest to get, once that is bagged the others are easy. i got lucky in baggin a jay and jackdaw very early on in the day. the rest just followed. B)

Ive done a real budget macnab, end of season roe doe in the morning, a day on a stocked loch (resulting in 3 rainbows) and then some pigeons at a roost shoot the same evening :good:

as far as crows goe, Ive had rook, carrion, jackdaw and jay in a day but never a magpie
