A beautiful morning to be out

Recommended Posts

Today was due to be a busy day, I had a lot a tree felling and ride clearing to do on our small syndicate shoot in order to get so much needed light onto the woodland floor. The wood in question has a rape field nearby that the pigeons have been giving some interest so I thought I take the gun and get their just before light and try and sneak in a bit of sport before getting the chainsaw out. Dawn was absolutely stunning with a sharp frost adding to the magic. I stood next to a thin belt of trees that the birds often head along and managed six birds in the hour I stood there. I know the photos shows four but I shot two just after I had taken the photo.

All the time I was stood there, skein after skein of Pinks passed high over, on their journey North.

Once I had finished the days work there was just enough time to get the gun out and intercept another half dozen coming back into the wood to roost. 

For me it was as perfect a day as you could wish for.http://a68.tinypic.com/121btqd.jpg

Well done. I was shooting corvids!

Excellent. Good time of year to be getting stuck into them. I also managed a magpie that stayed a little too near.

Good man, best bit was the Farmer drove past the field and rang me to say it's the first time for a while he had seen the field empty, until he spotted the decoys and knew why!

The other best bit was the scallops for dinner and a drop of Hooky Gold.:good:
