Have all the pigeons gone down south?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I can't seem to be able to find any pigeons round here (edinburgh / Lothian).

 

I've asked few friends to speak to farmers round their area and nowt! they won't give out permission either as they don't need to since their fields are not getting hammered.

 

By comparison, down south it seems that any field with rape is getting cleaned up and people are offering shooting at every opportunity as they can't get them under control......

 

any thought to spare?

 

Thanks,

 

Franco

Although is it just me or is decoying pigeons a right faff in the winter, its either the whole flock taking off or nothing !

Who told you that? Lol

 

My farmer has not been able to get anything in the ground as the fields are just to wet and have been for months, it's gonna be a sparse year by the look of it.......meanwhile, the bloke across the road has got his rape in and is getting hammered

He sells the shooting to a load of foreigners who are stood there in traccys and white jumpers with semi autos and rimmys !!!!! putting shit loads of lead in the air while the pigeons feed happily in the part of the field that they actually feed in.

 

I phoned him the other day to say your getting cleaned out and I shoot the farm across the way, no was the awnser......

We still have some stubble here mate which is unheard of as its normally ploughed in within a couple of weeks, cant get on to touch it.

Other than that most of it is still in heavy plough.

Aye, but to be honest mate I don't mind paying if that's what is needed, I have to pay for my fishing so it don't bother me one bit to pay for anything.

 

Never even got that far, hey ho, I ain't crying about it.....something else always comes along
