Thanks for posting, I find first light shooting is busy for the first two hours then tails off. We use to pack up and find where they had moved to.

PC, there is another field of rape on this farm and they headed off there, a banger rope would have kept them moving but I didn’t have one with me unfortunately

Good effort.

I see pigeons flighting at first light but they never seem to dive straight in to feed, preferring to sit up in tree for a while before dropping into rape.

Thank you JD,

I watched this field and set up on the thick hedge they usually head for first thing which gave me some nice flighting shots at first then later more decoying birds (ten full bodied decoys and two real birds on the magnet) so a nice mix of shots.

It was interesting that the birds have not flocked up as yet and came in small numbers some in ones or two’s, possibly due to the warm weather ?

Well done nice outing, the birds have been flocked up here for weeks.

I've found that air temperature makes little difference at this time of year, they're either feeding on the rape, or they're not, it's that simple.

There are no Acorns around these parts this Winter, as a consequence the birds have hit the rape early, you will only notice a difference in their feeding habits if we get prolonged snow cover, when they get very hungry and no amount of gas guns or shooting will get them to shift off the rape, they'll simply lift up and flop down at the other end of the field.

They are definitely on it Cat. There is nothing left for them but the rape now.
