Whats happened?

    Recommended Posts

    Some of the missing pigeons are here in the Wolds. I watched in awe yesterday as a stream of pigeons several thousand strong flew over me in a long line for fifteen minutes.

    On another matter, all of the pigeons I have shot recently have been in excellent condition. Crop contents have been mostly beans and barley from stubbles.

    JDog,

    It would be greatly appreciated if you would kindly scare some of your thousand strong pigeons in a southerly direction. A few hundred would suffice.

    Many thanks.

    Generous as I may be I may not be able to help in this instance. It is probably thirty years since I saw an accumulation of pigeons like this here of late. The stubble fields should keep them occupied for a while at least.

    Its very quite in my area, some birds in the woods and a few small groups on clover.

    There have been some large flocks of very high pigeons passing over for the last few days, mostly heading Northwest, but they are not stopping here.
