Shot a small field of rape today, I had seen birds on it Saturday and watched them Sunday i didn't have permission so went door knocking on Sunday found the owner, he said he rented it to a farm up the road 10 mins later i had permission but for Monday only as he said he had some regular guys that shoot it, where were they!!
Arrive about 9;30 watched the field, I set up under some large oaks at the top of the field which the birds were using as sittey trees. started shooting about 11 ish, birds all cleared off to a rape field far away, but small groups returned to use the trees and some committed to the decoys, hard work for 8 birds should have been 28 but for the first part of the session I was a good bird scarer. they are extremely head strong in large flocks !
