Fruit of the oak

    Recommended Posts

    Had a ride around the farms today and found lots of pigeons feeding under the oak trees . One field was winter barley that has two mature oaks just a few feet apart in the hedgerow. I sat in the truck and watched several pigeons dropping out of the sky and landing in the oaks . There were several birds feeding on the ground and the others soon joined them . They were having a good feed on the acorns . I walked over to the trees and disturbed at least 150 birds off the floor and in the trees . I went back to the truck and with in 15 minutes the birds were returning . Will have a crack at them tomorrow .

    Still on the hawe trees and bushes around me, but they are very fickle, lots of trees to choose from, so a couple of shots and their gone. Waiting to see what some hard frosts and possible snow might bring (I'm sure we'll have snow after that long hot summer) as I have winter rape and vetch etc growing on my biggest perm. Not got any decent oaks or woods unfortunately, so no roost shoots either.

    Only one field of beet has been harvested so far and it was drilled the next day with barley . Some of my best days have been on beet stubble . Hoping to have a go a couple of weeks down the road .
