Yesterday (Friday) i was out again, sat watching pigeon and crow having their breakfast on OSR at 0815. I'm not allowed to go bang till 0830 so walked them off and sat waiting, no hide no decoys. 0825 they're back, 0831 shot a crow coming in, missed a second. All gone, day over, now they're sat on the barn roof where I can't shoot. Spent a couple more hours in recce and a short walked up shoot. Zero. Crows on the organic farm two fields over🤣 apparently they don't belive in shooting them. Pigeon in sitty trees but taking flight if you come within a 1/4 mile. 

Today dawns, sat waiting for my son to pick me up. 5 mins late already, little sleepy head.
