5 outings since 7th April for 143 mixed corvids (Rooks,Carrions,Jackdaws & Hoodies).

All outings were requested,permitted by local FEO's & on a few different farms,all legal & above board under the current lockdown situation & every possible precaution taken.

Highlight was a 110 yard belly crawl to get within range of a Hoodie that was actively terrorising a pair of nesting Lapwings,32gms of No5 'Stone Dead' saw the hoodie being exactly that!,whilst picking up the Hoodie & returning i saw no sign of a destroyed nest but judging by the behaviour of all 3 birds there was definitely a nest nearby,i'm happy in the knowledge that i probably saved it.
