  1. It is a flip top feeder, and the only access is if they opened the lid and get their head in. They often actually climb in completely and sit in there munching away. I have a trail camera on it and haven't seen anything else in there, but I guess a small mouse may not be triggering the system. I have monitored it close closely and the level of feed seems to match the level on the camera when squirrels are visiting. One squirrel seems to eat a hell of lot though. I have watched them put it away! Hoping to draw them in from far and wide.
  2. Another 9 since posting. My feeder must be drawing in them in far and wide now. They empty the whole thing in less than 48 hours. (25) 1172
  3. My feeder has been visited now. Set a trail cam up opposite it and it's active from around 7am to 8pm. Not sure if the same squirrels, but there are squirrels on it it all day. I'll shoot some and see! Got one yesterday (17 total) 1096
  4. 5 more since last post. Still seeing a few around. Not much luck with the feeder yet. Too dry I think, they're nibbling the buds etc I think. 16 so far 1048
  5. Why are people not going BASC? The cost? Or something worse? Guessing lead
  6. Seem to be a fair few here in West Sussex. They're very secretive though and need creeping up on. Had 12 on my pretty small permission and not a lot of dreys. I've not really focused on them before, but not many rabbits and songbirds in decline have given me an unhealthy vendetta against them this year.
  7. I guess a variation is a lot more simple and I made it very easy for them with forms and a cover letter. Having said that a SGC should be relatively straightforward too, but who knows what it entails
  8. Sussex Police have a very good firearms department. Always friendly and helpful on the phone. Sent a FAC variation off last Thursday, and got it back in the post today with all the alterations made. Only around 3 working days effectively. I did phone prior.
  9. another 3 this evening roosting with the shotgun. Awesome in the high winds. Enjoying the Eley Pigeon HV 107
  10. 3 more today with the shotgun. My feeder is also being visited but not results from it yet 630
  11. 3 crows with the shotgun and a rook with the HMR. Was one of my best shots - rook walking, off the shoulder confirmed 62 yards. 104
  12. 6 for me so far. Got a feeder up outside the kitchen window now too. 3 with the air rifle, 2 with the shotgun and 1 with the HMR Need to hit the dreys before leaf 617
  13. Shot 3 last weekend. First 3 (and post) for many years. They're making a very small comeback in the horse fields, and seen some droppings around elsewhere. Applied for my .243 to stop charlie getting them too. Will be out tomorrow afternoon, too, for a look. 60 total.
  14. Just spent the last couple of months popping a 3.5 litre Rover V8 into mine. Rebuilt the carbs and it goes like **** off a stick. Series Land Rovers are immense fun
