Harvest

I'm not sure what i'm going to to do this year.

My farm (or at least part of it) is going to form part of the new Thames Crossing and they have been taking measurements and soil samples all year, so my crop choice presently consists of onions and spuds - Not sure that's going to get the pigeons in, but hoping the ducks may take a liking to it later in the year

It's always worth looking for a flightline into the spuds if they are being irrigated as pigeons need a good drink especially if feeding on grain somewhere nearby.

Why comedians? I've shot pigeon's that had been dropping in immediately behind the combine as the rape was being harvested.

you have to see them in action all i can say is if you can’t find a flight line with a guide dog take free advice or stay home
