  1. Thanks, that's great cheers
  2. Hi All, I'm trying to figure out how the bonnet fits on a David Brown 880 Selectamatic. I originally though that it had something to do with the two holes on the panels at the front of the bonnet - but on closer inspection, these seem to be for headlights and other attachments. Also, and despite the fact I'm missing the chin peice (part 915507) I cant find anything for it to bolt onto - so I'm wondering, does it just sit on, and the front of it rests on the chin piece? Finally, does anyone know what size the top coupling for the three point linkage needs to be? I've tried the one off my Zetor 6718, and that's too big. Best, Peter
  3. Thanks for the replies Care and caution seem to be the way forward - possibly with a beer on the side
  4. So, is there an easy way to do this? I shoot about 15 to 20 or so a year, and now freeze them in the feather. Previously I plucked them prior to freezing - but however I do it, it takes forever and I never end up with a perfectly plucked bird. I've tried duck wax - which helps - but isn't a miracle cure. I've tried a hand held kitchen flame thrower. There must be some kind of knack to it - isn't there?
  5. Even worse... Thanks though. I'm tempted to leave it over to course of the year and see what happens - if it gets significantly worse then I can buy and plan another come the colder months. As it stands, I'll struggle to get a replacement tree at this time of year.
  6. Alas, that was not what I wished to hear. Pruning time it is then.....
  7. Ah, thanks - fingers crossed. I'll keep an eye on it and see what happens.
  8. Hi All, Would anyone be able to let me know one way or the other if this is Apple Canker? Its appeared on a young tree (Broxwood Foxwhelp) that I planted last year. Obviously, I'm intrested in some heavy pruning if it is, as I don't want it to spread to any of the other trees. Apoligies for the quality of the picture - my phone wont focus that close, so I had to stand back and use the digital zoom. Many thanks, Peter
  9. Flattering as that potential prospect may be, I think they need a Solicitor with some considerable experiance, as opposed to a paralegal with relatively little. 👍
  10. I think you have perhaps misinterpreted what I said. I'm not suggesting a legal challenge, or indeed anything of the kind. What I am suggesting however, is that BASC should be takeing legal advice on their possition, which they in turn are advising their members to follow. It would seem to me to be prudent for them to do so - but perhaps this is because I work in a law firm and have first hand experience of a large number of Companies - both small and large - seeking advice on the current situation. Personally, I feel that this would be wise. I asked the question originally while fully under the belief that they would have referred it to some form of legal counsel. Its shocking to me that they have not. That said, I personally think the advice BASC have handed out is sound. However - and I'll refer you to a previous thread on this subject - I (perhaps reasonably or perhaps not) feel I am able make that call for myself. I'll say though, that I have no plans to end my membership of BASC, and in general, I'm fully supportive of what they do. However, I think they have misjudged this one. It would do a world of good - and probably save them some money in the medium / long term if they employed an in house Solicitor. My reduced hours end tomorow, so I wont be able to participate in this topic, or any future ones to the same degree. However, I'll still be following them with intrest.
  11. My reply assumed you were acting in an official capacity and therefore relaying BASC's official possition. For the avoidance of doubt, it is this I am referring to as naive. In this instance it is plainly clear that more than lobbying can be done - and it can be done in the form of seeking legal advice on the behalf of BASC's membership to afford them some degree of certainty in what is for many a very uncertain position.
  12. Sorry, but that is incredibly naive. I'm also takeing from how your reply was phrased that BASC dont have access to in house or pro bono legal counsel, which is again, naive enough to be bordering on irresponsible. BASC are the largest pro shooting body in the United Kingdom - that they are providing advice to membership regarding new police powers, goverment guidelines, and potential criminal sanctions without having sought legal advice themselves is somewhat shocking.
