That was the same as us the other day les . For what ever reason they was coming in really low . It was only when they took back off you could see them with the back light . Hopefully we'll have a bit of wind tomoz facing into the back light so we can see them coming in .

Too much water about at the minuite, the duck have a vast choice of where to go. Been feeding my splash for a couple of months and have had a steady stream of mallard off it. Shot 2 days ago and not one to be seen, was almost dark when a few teal turned up and my mate dropped a nice cock bird. 4 more duck came in and curled round, I pipped the teal call and they were silhouetted for a second and 2 fell to my one shot. Picked them up to be surprised by a 1st winter cock wigeon and a hen....well pleased.

Yes mate, all this flood water the mallard will be hoovering up drowned worms. Once their choice drys up a bit they will return, just keep feeding mate.

Always said shooting wild mallard at dusk on a frosty night is the best shooting you will get.
