I think it is important to get on to the field soon after its been cut.

 

I went today and shot over a field that was cut a week ago.

Although there was still some spilt seed on "my" field, they were mostly interested in the field that was cut two days ago.

They really are spoilt for choice.

 

I shot 9 birds between 8.30 and 2.30.....for 10 shots.

Not an earth-shattering total of birds, but I think as the fields of stubble (rape,then cereals) become more available to the birds, it will be harder to shoot big bags.

 

In about 3 weeks time, when all the wheat is combined around here, every field for miles will be a prospective dinner table for the pigeons.

I suppose thats what makes it interesting........hard,but interesting.
