  1. I thought numbers of Spoonbill in Norfolk were slowly on the increase but someone reporting 35 on Stiffkey Fen yesterday.
  2. Mr Golley knows his stuff that's for sure.
  3. Western Sandpiper link below: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-16317226
  4. Nice ! I'd like one with side lever cocking though.
  5. Try Chris at Wymondham Sporting Guns https://www.norfolk-sporting-guns.co.uk/ or Phillip at Phillipwebstergunsmith at http://www.philipwebstergunsmith.co.uk/ Both stock Beretta guns.
  6. Here's the linky thingy to Tinbum kits. https://www.airrifletuning.com/product-category/tbt-tuning-kits/
  7. There was a flock of bee-eaters at Gt Yarmouth recently. The last time i saw some was in Cyprus ! Report here: https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/bee-eater-birds-at-gapton-hall-yarmouth-8076980
  8. I drove along there on Monday, from Potter Heigham to Thurne where I did a bit of fishing. Loads of birds along there sitting on the wires and dropping in to large areas of laid barley. A heck of a lot of crows too.
  9. Looking good RFB ! 👍
  10. I see under the Shiant project the non-native Black Rat was listed as a target. Thanks for these links.
  11. A while ago I read something about the Hebridean Corncrake breeding environment had taken a step backwards due to hedgehog and rat predation.
  12. I don't know the striker at all but I read your earlier post and it seems it's capable of high power. Is it worth putting it on your ticket? Now you've done a bit of maintenance It's the sort of gun that will shoot pretty nicely as FAC level. Mind you ten and a half will kill our fury friends as long as you don't push it too far. Happy to help you out with some lead free as I really don't have any need for it. Good luck I hope you get the Striker shooting as you would like it. Did they make that gun in .25 cal ?
  13. Good plan Scully, stockpile. Now the loo roll has all gone i have the room. 😀
  14. Blimey, steel is the shot of Satan. It'll ruin a decent gun. I have a lovely old 16 bore SxS made by Clough of Kings Lynn which is about 100 years old. And a Wilkinson SxS made in 1911 . Remember Wilkinson Sword the razor blade people? What am I supposed to do with these lovely things ? Cut 'em up and stick 'em in the melting pot?
  15. Lovely birds Corncrakes. The first one I ever saw and heard was from the bridge at Wiveton, looking south towards Glandford, Norfolk. In the 1990's I fished for salmon and sea trout on Benbecula , in the Outer Hebrides and saw three in a week ! We used a hair comb and grease proof paper to call them. It worked.
