OSR time?

Recommended Posts

Roughly how long after losing the bright yellow flowers does OSR attract pigeons. Very little on my perms at this time, hoping for some action on a nearby OSR field whilst lock down continues and my work is slow. Cheers. Hope you're all staying safe and sane

I have shot them eating the flowers and/or the bits recovering from their earlier attacks They are doing that right now, down the road from me (no permission)

After that I would say harvest time.

Pigeons will feed on rape plants at all stages of growth. I know a couple of folk who are shooting on some rape as I write this, although this will be on some rape that has grown poorly.

Cool.  The particular field I'm watching was hit hard some months back, but recovered very well and in some places is a good 6 feet tall.  There are some good size tram lines through it and a nice line of trees on one edge. As all the sewn crop of wheat is well out of the ground after the rain and sun, there's not much else around so I'll keep a close eye on things. Theres also a really good field of barely (not mine) next to the osr, which is well in ear, so that may help pull them to the area as it ripens.

Blimey, rape 6 feet tall, must be the sea air, you will have more chance on the barley than the rape.

Barley is not mine unfortunately. Think I may only be able to use tall floaters and shells balanced on top if not too windy.
