Farmer phoned yesterday to say lots of pigeons on rape where we shot earlier in the week with only a slight breeze. Went across this morning 10 am and not a pigeon to be seen, came home via 3 other farms including viewing a rape field which has been hard hit nothing. 33 miles in total and saw no birds in the trees or on the ground. I am quite sure that under extreme windy conditions pigeon shall sit tight in shelter, especially at this time of year as days lengthen and they have ample time to feed.
Should have said it was blowing a gale this morning
