Tonight’s flight

Recommended Posts

well an excellent night was had again after 
We had our fortnightly shoot tonight on the splash . 

only 2 of us were shooting tonight so I had 3 duck and a pheasant and my mate had 4 duck. I lost my 4th in the splash somewhere somehow even with the dog .

Good stuff..plenty of birds and 3 glasses each ? 😄

One each as we have a bloke who can’t shoot due to illness. He just watches

TT, you should market those commercially (bit posher of course).

I’m really not happy with the quality and to do it I’d need £300+ vat. All of a sudden they’ll need a lot better clips etc. 
Maybe one day :) but thank you

Great result TT.  I glanced over there yesterday and it looked to have settled down.  For those who do not know the area TT is shooting, only a couple of weeks ago the whole area was completely underwater and you could not even see where the river ran.  I was born and bred almost within a stones throw and back in the late 50s early 60s shot that same area and in the early 50s as a kid, snook about there with my catapult as there was a certain spot on that river where the pebbles where perfect ammo.   I had never seen it completely covered like that ever.

It is very comforting to know the spot is being enjoyed by one of the nicest young chaps I know.   Unfortunately I am led to believe this stupid high speed executive special high speed rail line is going right through it.  Enjoy whilst can my friend.

Not a lot of money to a 3 X 300 bird days a week man with a new Range Rover. I think they would sell at that.

I guess your right. I’ll price them up ;)

This is my 3rd season on there and this year alone we’ve had 5 geese , 20+ ducks . 
you know what they say about people. Treat them how they treat you. You couldn’t of looked after me more and it’s appreciated nev . 

hs2 goes straight through the middle and I’ve already lost 5 farms to it. It’s upsetting to think it goes through my mates ashes .

What species of duck were they ? , I can see three Mallard and what look like a couple of drake Gadwall , but the two smaller look streamlined and could be hen Pintail or this years hen Gadwall .

Did the cock bird come in with side lights on :hmm:?

The pheasant was at the beginning of the shoot as we got there around 2:40 . I had about 4-5 feeding around the splash which will be 1 a time I hope for the season 😎.

the ducks we get on the splash are mallard , widgeon and teal.  We’ve had a few greylag around besides Canada’s
