    Jackdaws today

    Over the last few years the jackdaw population has increased dramatically this is mainly due to the mild winters of late also we see more farms changing to organic . These places are free meals for jackdaws they raid the meal stores , enter the free range poultry houses and steal the eggs , sheep and beef field feeders are a favourite place also the piggeries . Where you see sheep in fields you also see rooks and jackdaws ,the most destructive period is when the barley starts to ripen ,if you get a flock of 100 plus jackdaws and rooks on ripen barley it is not long in taking out a half of acre ..

    Henderson Hammer Gun 20 bore

    If it is by the Anderson of Malton this family was in Business in Malton from 1848 to 1937 I believe there was a period between 1867 to 1900 when there was no record of them but William was in Hull in the 1860 . William Anderson Malton Market Place 1848 - 1855 William Anderson Hull 1867 John Anderson {Son ] 52 Market Place Malton 1901 -1937 There was also another son Henry F Anderson Market Place , Bedale 1900 This is what I have on the Anderson Family but the name Henderson in the gun trade is rare , but he may have been a iron monger Feltwad

    Yes it looks a nice gun any makers name. May I say and I am not nit picking but the gun looks to me of a later date say 1840 -50 and is of a true percussion build , I have restored several guns like yours with the broad band of Damascus barrels . Feltwad
