  1. Dewalt combi drill, need not be the brushless model for diy, will drill & screwdriver to DIY standards
  2. Trouble is if the space is too short you will eventually end up with a minimum of 3 dogs, mine are labs oldest one lived to 13 1/2 youngest died at just before 12yrs I find they roughly ease up at 10yrs if used for full days shooting or picking up. So... 1 dog retired 1 dog about to retire 1 trainee You have now moved to 3 dogs as the spacing is too close I have had 3 several times when I was breeding just to keep my blood line but now have 2 and replace as one passes away.
  3. I think 8yrs is time for a apprentice dog roughly 2 years until they are ready for the field then my older one that would be 10yrs is retired from fowling and does peg days and pigeon decoying with apprentice watching to steady it up. You have to think kennel room and time.... also the amount of work you have for them,
  4. Think even they would have trouble trying to influence anything on the washes, remember at the end of the day they just make up a large drainage channel when needed and are not a natural thing but were dug out so how does that stand in thier natural environment.
  5. Wishing you all the best, so not a dig but would hate to see a new venture fail but your figures are dirt cheap if I read it rightly. A syndicate member shoots at £12.50 bird A single gun on same bag at £350 shots at just over £29 a bird On last seasons price per bird you would be a very cheap shoot day

    is weekend

    The straightening of water ways so we can build nice picturesque houses on the banks, this shortens the water course meaning water gets from A to B quicker but if it cannot get out it backs up. Also in this area not seen a dragline dredger since I was a boy, the salt marsh is now higher than the land inside the sea wall and is pumped out by automatic pumps instead of lock gates, the sea wall needs strengthening now but I guess cannot be touched because it is a sssi , when will common sense come back to be back , too much done by people with degrees rather than experience.
  7. Wish basic would fight for lesser areas gl and wildfowling like it does the £££££ game area even before its hit the headlines they are prepared to go all the way. Just saying......
  8. Always been Saturday in my bit of Lincolnshire, was a decent evening tonight but due to wind didn't hear much shooting but saw more birds than last week.
  9. What about charge times Think motorway services can fill your car in 5min and pay, if a car is electric and taking 20min say to charge the area will need to huge. How will a service bus run all day.
  10. You could try a kale/rape hybrid as you have no chemical control this may be a alternative, when i have used it it has out grown flea beetle damage,

    Possibly chuck up a McDonald's as that's part of wild britain on a friday or Saturday night.
  12. My yellow lab makes noises when pampered in a relaxed state, if I ask her what she has to say she will mostly talk back to receive more fuss. The other dog doesn't do a thing.
  13. Think he's after 2 pegs, not offering as I read it might be wrong.
  14. I had a day shooting with a chap a couple of weeks ago in Norfolk he has parkinsons for several years now, is on medication and has the shakes also drives, but still a accomplished game shot. All the best to you.
  15. Put signs up dog wires, then use mig welder wire on 2x2 posts 15 inches high job done. They will have to roll the dice to course your patch.
  16. Yup good to know your still about,
  17. Yes all wishing you a great new year ahead, and have a safe evening.

    Smart Meters

    I work on a council contract which requires some electrical works, we have to get that company to come unlock meter seal, on investigation if you wish to change supplier you may require to pay for new (different) meter
  19. Did you book as individual gun or are there people who you have shot with before attending. Just if you have idea of others shooting.
  20. Possibly the ground that used to be Sinclair's holbeach st johns area
  21. Yes really like a good christmas morning, watched the pinks come to feed on a field as I was on my way to the marsh to walk the dogs. Always seems all is right in the world walking the dog's along the sea wall on a crisp Christmas morning. Have a great day everyone.
