I reported in Sporting Pictures on 27 Dec of an enjoyable outing I had in a small wood in a huge block of rape. Since then I have had a few other trips there with bags of 13, 6, 7 and a fantastic 32 in 40mph winds. This was as a brilliant flight that will linger for a long time. It included a remarkable (lucky) treble where 3 birds came like tracers downwind and having shot the first, the other two bomburst left and right in the gale and I managed to snapshot them both - 3 dead in the air.  I wish that was the norm!  Since the weather turned, there has been a big increase in pigeon numbers in our area and each rape field seems to have pigeon numbers on. I have shot various fields at first light, all within 5 miles of my house with bags of 2, 6, 9, 17 and 7 this morning in driving sleet. I am looking forward to the afternoons extending so I can decoy the birds on their afternoon feed. 

Apologies, I meant to post in Talk from the Field - can admin transfer?
