  1. Really like the design of the images and surprised at how determined they are to get in. With a 2 wire electric fence around it (solar or battery powered) would it keep them far enough away but still allow the pheasants in? Roe are also an issue but I can deal with them!!
  2. Thanks guys, much appreciated. Obviously need to allow access for the pheasants but could I put a low level electric fence round it too or is that a no no?
  3. My feeders are getting hammered by badgers..Any recommendations on how to protect?
  4. Thanks for the suggestions. Kale may be a good option but i'll give Kings a shout and see what they recommend too.
  5. Thanks Walker, we've been using millet but it tends to be giving poor cover by the end of January. We have a real problem with Badgers and are actually going to do away with one drive because of them.
  6. I'm looking for some recommendations on a cover crop that will last through to the end of January'. This is a family pheasant shoot with 1 shoot day in November and 1 shoot day at the end of January. It's a totally organic farm so any cover crop has to grow without and be free from chemicals and fertilizers. What do those in the know recommend
  7. yes from me too if MM can't pick up (as if!!!) .... and I'm in Norwich too 🙂
  8. I'm not a heating engineer but have had my fair share of Baxi boiler issues through the years. First things first.... With the current cold ambient temperatures the hot water will likely not get as hot anyway... With a smaller output boiler (24-28kW) and a flow rate of 9-10 litres per minute the water temperature will rise by a given amount. If the starting temperature of the inlet water is colder then the outlet water will also be colder, unless you slow down the flow rate. As LG says, it could be the diverter valve..... Turn off your heating and allow the system to fully cool. Feel the temperature of the heating flow and return pipes to make sure it has fully cooled. With the heating still turned off, turn on the hot tap and let it run, slowly close the hot tap until you get the water as hot as possible. Does it get hot enough? If so it could just be the inlet water temperature being lower than normal or it could be the heat exchanger blocked. Leave it running for 15 minutes and then feel the flow and return central heating pipes. If they are hot then it's most likely the divert valve. Most of the manuals for the Baxi boilers are available online and have a fault finding section in the back as well as part numbers should you need spares. Disclaimer I'm not a heating engineering so feel free to ignore all the above!!
  9. Wish I'd bought something from you in the past.... Great offer 👍
  10. I will look for the leak but will have to pressure wash the underside first. A quick question.....could the fluid escape into the servo from the master cylinder thus not showing a leak? If you didn't guess... I'm not a car mechanic.
  11. where would you look first? 1993 LR Disco 300Tdi (bit of a farm/shooting vehicle) Brakes were working fine then pedal went soft. Checked fluid...Reservoir Empty so topped up. Pedal spongy but brakes worked "sort of", better after pumping the pedal a few times (yes it probably needed bleeding). Fluid did not empty out again until today, a couple of months later...no signs of leaks at first viewing but it is covered in farmyard s###. Would you look at master cylinder, slave cylinder or something else? P.S.it is the HSE with ABS
  12. Hi Marc and welcome to the forums. I'm another local'ish member, living in Norwich but shoot just a couple miles further up the road from you towards Fakenham.

    2 callers

    HI Cragman, can I take the Extreme U-Caller with the 2 cards? Payment via paypal?

    MPG

    Also remember that modern diesels with a DPF continuously monitor and periodically increase the amount of fuel going in to make the exhaust gases burn hotter. This in turn burns off the soot build up in the DPF. When this is going on your MPG will be rubbish.
