  8. Been to one of my permissions today and sat with the binoculars watching the rooks frantically building their nests ready for the year This wood gas been very quiet over the winter not sure where they go but they are back here in numbers now Should I strart shooting them or let them be for a while as I know I need to thin them out for the farmer But I don't want to scare them off and stuff my shooting up and them to move on to another area
  9. Many thanks for all the replies I will give doveridge shooting ground a call only 15 mins up the road Where is he based please
  10. I have contacted a company called Pennsports regards getting some lessons on shooting with both eyes open as I am struggling at the minute to master this, I have had a price of £165 per hour plus cartridges plus clays does this sound about right for shooting lessons as its a bit more than I thought it would be just wondered what any of you have paid in the past Cheers

  13. Yes that is the leaf in its crop but such small quantity all birds had very little in them so why they not eating much they just seem to sit in the trees all day
  14. Also forgot to say opened the crop of 3 birds 2 had minimal amounts of rape in them and one had what looked like clover leaves perfect whole very small leaves would this be clover ???? None of the birds had much in there crop quite empty to be honest why would this be birds were shot at different times throughout the day Had a comfy chair and 4g on my phone so browsed eBay a little but mainly just enjoyed being outside for the day
  15. Went out today was set up by 1st light and stayed all day till 4.45pm nice wind from behind, I have watched these fields and the pigeons have been on them and the damage is plain to see but they were not there today only good thing is the birds I did shoot decoyed into my pattern very well with no hesitation. Hardly saw a bird all day nearly 10 hrs in the hide and only 5 birds I went 3 hrs at one point around lunch without seeing a pigeon anywhere but hey ho at least when I got home the wife had washed her car cleaned the leaves up and mowed the lawn so not all bad
