The farmer text Wednesday saying there back on the big field so two out of the freezer for the magnet and gear ready for an early start, arrived at 7.30 with an almost full value 10-15mph from my left, I moved further along the hedge this time almost to the dogleg, magnet and decoys out and hide built around the umbrella to keep the wind off.

The first birds arrived about 8.30 coming with the wind and turning into the decoys a treat (love it when it works) it slowed to a trickle about 10  with most birds shot over the decoys but with a few fast birds taken in the wind I finished on 49, feeling my age these days and still fatigued from COVID last November stopping 3 times on the short walk back to the motor, thank you for reading and all the best for 2022.

Great result- thank you for posting.

Wind is essential for decoying at this time of year, I love it when they come in low into the wind like driven partridge.

Keep your posting your reports- Happy new year.
