  1. What a wonderful story. Great to hear about acts of kindness, you must be very proud of her and rightly so.
  2. Cracking footage and some tidy shooting. Thanks for posting.
  3. This evenings meal will be Stir Fried pigeons breast washed down with a glass or 2 of Rioja, great day in good company with something delicious at the end of it, perfect.
  4. The bed bath I was ok with but the suppository was a bit much. JDog did indeed have a few shots and managed to put a few birds in the bag. It was nice to witness Jackos first left and right, the second of which was a lovely quartering bird at a good distance. It was not an ideal situation as the sun was in our faces for a couple of hours but this is where we needed to be to be on the line. After an hour or so of very little movement I thought that the birds had maybe decided to feed elsewhere. The block of rape we where on was 700 acres and we could not see half of it so they could easily have moved to another area out of sight. But hey what do I know, they line started back up again and there was a trickle of birds. I guess the birds had probably filled their crops earlier on and were now coming out for a second feed which they would be keen for as we were in for another freezing night. I left the Dog with Jacko at around 1.30pm as my wife was expecting me home at 1. Just as the second wave of birds were heading out of the woods to feed. I could hear them banging away as I walked back to my vehicle, I was in no way jealous at all🤥.
  5. I imagine forty odd pigeon in a strong breeze would have been brilliant fun. Great report, thanks for posting.
  6. Sod the spring, you better be fit for Saturday, missing pheasants screaming along in 30 mph winds won’t be the same without your unique brand of leg pulling.
  7. I’m not sure spending hours with young females clad in nurses outfits constitutes a Hospital stay🤔
  8. We had a leg of our own Lamb, haven’t eaten Turkey for years. Most of the Veg. was picked from the allotment on Christmas Eve. Not great fuss, just put the Lamb in the slow cooker in the morning and steamed the veg. Washed it all down with a glass or two of red and then a few more glasses of Guiness. Oh and some slow gin made by a friend.
  9. Thanks again PC. I look forward to your honest and detailed write ups each week. Merry Christmas and keep em coming in the Mew Year.
  10. Worlaby is around 8 miles from Louth, shooting in a lovely part of the wolds.
  11. It is a bit awkward on this particular farm as the well established lines just happen to run along where the drives are ( a series of small woods/spinneys which the pigeon aim for and then drop down onto the rape).The birds are difficult to pull off the lines. The flip side is when I can get on there I can right on the line and the sport is often really good.
  12. Top result that. Sounds like there will be another report coming from that farm in the near future.
  13. One farm I shoot has some very good lines during the winter months but is often difficult to shoot as my cousin runs a game shoot on there and I don’t want to disturb the game during the season. This morning presented an opportunity with good winds to concentrate the lines which would be passing over a drive which will no longer be used this season. I invited my cousin along too as he enjoys pigeon shooting as much as I do when he gets a chance to get away from the farm. I knew the birds would be coming from a roost wood in a valley 2 miles away and would head over a small pond surrounded by tall Ash trees.This is where we concealed ourselves just before dawn. The wind was gusting up to 35mph according to the forecast, the birds would be flying into this, perfect😄. All we had to do was wait. At 07.50 the first birds started to appear but not quite as I had hoped as they were in groups of 50-100. I was hoping for smaller groups but we took what was on offer. The birds were junking around, some close to the ground and others 30-40 yards up which made for exciting shooting. The action lasted for about 45 mins before the line stopped. We had some great fun with every shot in the book presented to us. We picked 25 pigeons with one more dropped on the island of the pond( no dog to pick it). At around midday I had a ride round and spotted another line going to a rape field further up the valley, there were around 600 birds down feeding. Looks like tomorrow morning will be another windy one so I will be tucked up in a hedge again seeing what this line brings, with a bit of luck there maybe a bit of sport.
  14. Thanks for posting. Time out in the field is never wasted. Last Sunday I was out as the sun rose and got exactly the same bag as you. It was one of the most pleasurable couple of hours out I have had and to cap it off I spotted another line that I plan to look at this morning. keep the m coming.
