  1. http://forums.pigeonwatch.co.uk/forums/ind...861&hl=izzy Hope this link helps and works! My liver and White (chocolate roan) working cocker bitch was very white as a pup, as she's matured she's got a lot more roan come through. Her sire was a near solid chocolate dog. Her dam was a very dark blue roan bitch. Hope you can see in the link the litter threw out lots of different colours. Harry.
  2. And there was me about to post pictures of our beaters day, held on Saturday 31st Jan, just in season. Now I'll have to wait until Thursday 1st October until i can post the photos. OH God! I shot a partridge in the afternoon does that mean I can post some pictures from beaters day on Tuesday 1st September but not show any pheasants Yours with a massive sense of humour, Harry.
  3. Give the guy some slack B) I've seen lots of these produced and sent to fellow beaters following beaters days. All in good jest and if you didn't get the irony of the post I suggest you go and find a sense of humour!
  4. Always had Springers, well for over 20 years. Decided to get a Cocker back in 2006. Now in my opinion they have a heart as big as a lion and always wants to please. Big cock birds no trouble for her to retrieve, fearless in cover, swims well and steady on the peg. I won't be getting a Lab until I'm old and senile, they do nothing for me seeing them plodding along. The cover down here suits a Spaniel and the busyness of them, I could watch a good spaniel Quest all day. Guess what I'm out with the best dog I've ever owned now for the next 3 days. She'll be knackered at the end of the day but she'll be re-energised by the next day. She can have Feb off sat in a hide pigeon shooting. Cockers for me now :wacko:
  5. Was a article in one of last years Saturday supplements with the Daily Mail all about him and how he was favourite.
  6. We can all hope! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/7840339.stm
  7. Crop protection next week. Well some pheasant shooting/beating. I wonder what age gun and if they use paper cartridges?
  8. Residents in the Kingswinford area of the Black Country have been plagued by hundreds of pigeons settling near their homes. Get down for some decoying on the local football pitch! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7833671.stm
  9. I always used to reply, "They'll be more than you can shoot on beaters day"
  10. Bird strikes arn't cheap in respect of lives and plane repairs-replacement. So Why do airfields not take bird controll seriously? They pay peanuts to airfield bird controllers or give the job to the fire section! The bird strike was off the airfield as the plane was climbing. I worked for the MoD as a ABCO (Airfield Bird Control Officer) for 7years at Europes busiest military airfield. We were a small unit of 3. We used to pride ourselves at only having a bird strike on the airfield once every 2 years, most of those were swifts, swallows and house martins which are very hard to control. We had plenty of emergency landings from other aircraft with bird strikes though. Sea gulls being the favourite. The costliest bird strike $270 million. A AWACS had multiple bird strikes (flock of geese) on take off from a airfield in Alaska, loss of all 24 on board. UK's was 17 November 1980: Bird strike at Roseisle Forest, near Kinloss, Scotland. RAF Nimrod. XV 256 crashed on take off. The aircraft suffered a major bird-strike immediately after take off and crashed into a wooded are to the east of RAF Kinloss air base. Sadly, both pilots were killed but, due to their skill in controlling the crash, the remainder of the crew escaped. Posthumously, Flight Lieutenant Anthony, the flying pilot, was awarded the Air Force Cross and his Co-Pilot, Flying Officer Belcher, the Queen's Commendation for Valuable Service in the Air.
  11. I've got an ex who fox hunted and picked up rabbits while out lamping. I regularly beat with a lady who works cocker, springer, clumber spaniels and a border terrier. I've a good friend who flys Peregrine, Gos and Spar at partridge and who beats with his Brittanys. ALL VEGGIES!
  12. Brother-in-law is and he's a member on here, I'm seeing him later and will let him know someone's asking.
  13. Chin up mate. Amsterdam hey, have they got a good clay lay out or lots of decoying over there because there seem to lots of folks who want to take you over there I might have to give it a go. Can we get a sponsor?
  14. Working for the Mob i've got lots of mates who've worked in Saudi, Iraq and Afghanistan for private companies. The monies that were there in the private sector has dried up. The risks far out way the monetry gains now. Stay put and stick it out in Blighty if i was you. Just remember there's still awhole party of Brit security workers missing over there, must be 18 months now and no knowing if they're still alive.
  15. I've seen lots of these in peoples camper vans. Even seen some with a water tank for washing/washing up. There's a company who make them also. Some on fleabay. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/-gas-bottle-wood-bur...0110119002r5761 You can even make little one out of a heineken keg.
