Went down to the Solway a couple of weeks ago, but all that was about were Banacles.

Hoping to go again in a week or two, question is when do the Pink feet and greylags start appearing or if anyone has been recentley what was about?

Dream on. Bloody Hell you must be KING KONG to have carried 17 pinks of the marsh by yourself and 10 the following week there has never been that many shots in a morning flight apart from the 1st sept. at the feral greys. Keep dreaming .
and if you shot 17 pinks by yourself then you should be ashamed not bragging about it

Was that over decoys. Each to there own but if you took 17 pinks in one flight, I think that is a little too unsustainable mate, unless you are talking about a team of guns.

Make sure you dont do the same to greys unless you KNOW they are ferals. The migratory greys are not doing too well at the moment.
1 Grey per flight per gun for the migrants.

There is a river going into the forth just east of grangemouth. If you can work out access, it can have great duck flighting.
Also, what about the Clyde area, surely there is still wildfowling to be had there somewhere?
