    Handy having a rubbish skip beside the unwanted bag P C , with having that many on the farm it might be worth the farmer investing in a small Crow cage , easy to make and working seven days a week , no noise and no further cost after putting it out on site .

    Own Up , Did You Watch It ( Or Some Of It ) ?

    Joking aside , the worldwide television audience must have ran into many millions and there cant be many countries ( if any ) who can put on a show like that , lovely weather and set in a magical location . the organisers done a fantastic job..

    Normal for Norfolk

    I am quite impressed muncher , those piles are some of the neatest I have seen and it just goes to show what respect us Norfolk boys have for the humble Columba Palumbus As for Normal for Norfolk , it might well be for north of the county but down south our Peas are 2 / 3 inches high and at the moment the pigeons are showing very little interest in them , today I checked them all out and didn't see more than 100 on all the ones I looked at, hopefully things will improve when they get a little higher . WELL DONE on another solo ton +

    My brother went to look at the guns in Holts near Sandringham , ( maybe Motty knows where it is ) and he brought the list back and believe you me , there were 100s , all the guns had a sale estimate on them , say £300 to £450 , and if you wanted one you pay the lowest estimate , they had from the top of the scale , the bottom of the scale and everything in between . you can browse without any hassle and he was saying the staff were helpful if you needed any advise. Have anyone on P W been down this road to buy a gun ? , I have bought a few from auctions and haven't really regretted buying any of them .

    Own Up , Did You Watch It ( Or Some Of It ) ?

    Surely I wasn't the only P W member who wasted half an hour of my retirement watching a wedding which had a few more people going to the reception than my own ............. well , its looking like I was the only one
  7. After my usual taking my dog down to the river , the rest of the morning I was pottering about in the garden enjoying the lovely weather , then I went indoors as my wife had done a cuppa and a sandwich , yes you have guessed it , the wedding was on . I must admit the small bit I watched wasn't to bad as I think Harry is a bit of a Jack the lad , then that American chap came on rabbiting on like Billy Graham , after a couple of minutes the boredom had set in and it was time to check out the Pea fields . So did you see any of it , and if you did , what did you think of it ?

    It's not always a fib.

    This time of the year you might had done better by going dinner time and giving it the afternoon , rather than going fairly early in the morning till the time you packed up , you most probably live to far from the perm to keep a regular eye on it, but seeing is believing is always the best policy , and not second hand by somebody who think a few pigeons is a large flock.

    Has Wildfowling become too easy?

    As Grandalf stated ,clothing have seen major changes, from army surplus stores to the modern breathable clothing we can use now , as for water boots , the top of the notch were Bullseye , hard wearing but cold , you had to buy a size bigger to allow for an extra pair of socks , now I wear neoprene boots and I wonder how I ever managed without them as cold feet are now a thing of the past. Quarry species have also seen big changes , shooting waders was like your apprenticeship to a fully fledged wildfowler , you learnt about the different species , used the tides to your advantage , concealment , using decoys or silhouettes and shot them on the estuary during the warm and mild days in September . Although a lot of fun at the time and something I am glad I done , now I would no longer wish or want to shoot any more waders , Curlew especially ,as nowadays I would prefer watching them .
