  1. Agreed but I've done my fair share of reasoning with the unreasonable in the past. As I've grown older my patience and intolerance of fools has grown in proportion to the rise in my blood pressure. For the sake of the latter on this occasion I will leave others to thrust and parry with him.
  2. I am not going to engage with Avery. A clever man but is apt to spout about "shooting" this and that in such general and undoubtedly biased terms that there is no reasoning with him.
  3. Sporting Gun posted this on their FB page a couple of hours ago. All credit goes to Sporting Gun...
  4. I emailed mine but got not much of anything in response from one of her secretaries.
  5. The impression I'm getting purely based on observation around my place and locally is that there are more corvids around, or at least those I am seeing appear less timid.
  6. Be prepared to come away feeling somewhat frustrated!
  7. Well written, hopefully it might extract something worthwhile from "them".
  8. Where I am the police will immediately respond in force if they receive a report of hare coursing etc.
  9. His piece starts about "hrs 16 mins in.... BBC R4 Today Programme
  10. I think this thread is playing catch up. Best bet is to check the BASC, NGO & NE sites for the latest developments.
  11. https://www.nationalgamekeepers.org.uk/articles/new-woodpigeon-licence-appalling-says-ngo Last para states: ""In a separate and important development tonight, it has also emerged that the Secretary of State, Michael Gove, will be taking back control of bird licensing from Natural England, at least for a time, starting tomorrow (Saturday 4 May). Commenting on this news, Liam Bell said: “NE made a pig’s ear of licensing and changes were certainly needed. We must hope that Defra can do better and we will offer them every assistance in sorting out this mess. The priority is to get workable licences back up as soon as possible, especially at this critical time for both livestock and wildlife.”"

  13. Vast numbers of small boys are being issued with Mk5 football rattles and are being trained up as we speak and will be earning the princely sum of 2/6d a week ....which is ample for a family of six to live on and still allow Father a packet of Woodbines and a pint at weekends.
