  1. The lead ban for wildfowling has been in place for 20 years now. If ingested lead was killing a significant number, we should be overrun with ducks by now.
  2. Shot one that had a beak full of tiny snails once, I thought they were seeds but on closer inspection they were snails. I didn't even know they ate ragworm. I'm wondering if I can tame one and train it to collect rag for bait.
  3. Never had that problem on my CRV. However, the rear interior light is on a timer and goes off in about 20 secs, not enough time to get your boots off and gear inside. I've put a cheap (<£5) led with PIR sensor on the rear door, stays on all the time there's movement. Link below. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-LED-PIR-Motion-Sensor-LED-Night-Light-Battery-Operated-with-Magnetic-Strip/392447161253?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D40733%26meid%3Db38f820ed1d749fc9bfc39b06d8342cb%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D264228273455%26itm%3D392447161253%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  4. I ordered 10g to 12g adapters from USA and they just arrived in the post. Maybe I was lucky.
  5. Post them home to yourself while you're out there.
  6. Only problem I've had is that if you don't pull the bolt right back to the stop, the trigger doesn't cock. Then you have to remove the mag, rotate it to an empty slot and pull the bolt all the way back and reinsert the mag. If you don't do this, when you pull the bolt back again it loads a second pellet behind the one already in the breech. Once you get used to it, it's not a problem.
  7. Here you go, Alliant Reloaders Guide. http://www.alliantpowder.com/reloaders/RecipeList.aspx?gauge=10&gtypeid=3
  8. Maybe just feed the ditches and drains?
  9. Not a double hull. Has 2 separate side chambers pus a floor chamber. Seat rests and foot braces inflate separately.
  10. Self-inflating camping mattress? Drift off to sleep when the tide comes in.
  11. It's a Gumotex Twist 2. Unfortunately they stopped making them in camo colours 3 years ago. https://www.brighton-canoes.co.uk/productpages/gumotex/twist-2.htm
  12. It's inflatable so I carry it along the seawall in a rucksack, inflate it and paddle away. Also gives the dog somewhere dry to sit. If it blows up rough or a bird falls in the strong ebb and I think it's a risky retrieve for the dog, it's easy to launch and retrieve the bird from the kayak. Pic afloat with the dog attached below.
  13. 2 man inflatable kayak. Dog and gear goes in the front, I paddle from the stern.
  14. Jack Pyke neoprene dog vest. I stuff the floatation pockets with bubble wrap to give her a bit of extra buoyancy. The bits of foam rubber they supply with the jacket are rubbish.
