  1. I have never heard of property exclusions so just check your agreement. With valuable rifles, they should be in a cabinet anyway. And on your home contents insurance. You may have to be discreet about bolting a cabinet to a structural wall, and make it good if you move elsewhere.
  2. Parker Hale Striker my friend bought and passed this on thinking it was a standard BSA Supersport in .22 I think it was actually a Parker Hale Striker. The barrel is threaded and it has a Parker Hale scope rail. Has anyone on here had experience of these?
  3. Thank you for all the replies. I couldn’t get them from their roosting tree as they go too high up What I did do was to make a small holding pen from pallets and some doors. Then by some miracle, I caught a couple when they wandered into the duck run. Curiousity was the downfall of the remaining birds as they went to see their captive friends and I got them with the fishing net. They are now all together in a proper house
  4. Hello i have some Oxford Game birds that have gone wild They are emptying themselves on a neighbour’s path so I need to contain them. i caught some by cornering them and using a fishing net but the remaining ones are too wise now I have a Larsen trap but I am only getting Jackdaws with that. what other methods can I use before I just shoot them thank you
  5. Thank you I was thinking for hens not wild birds but this might explain why the idea hasn’t gone anywhere
  6. Hello I read on a smallholders forum that if you mix chilli oil with bird seed it makes it rat proof. Has anyone here tried it? Apparently birds don’t have the capability to taste and suffer from chillis but rats and mammals do.
  7. I only buy the magazines occasionally and I had noticed that the articles are hard to read. i thought it must be some trend. they seem to also have disproportionate pictures to text. Given that the forums are so active, there are lots of subjects they can take and embellish, so I don’t see why they are stagnating so much. i don’t think they are really giving their audience enough substance
  8. They both look like portable ironing boards, but what a good idea. i have been trying to knock up something myself as I prefer to make life hard for myself. Would be nice if you could build in some height adjustments
  9. I happened upon this site. It is dedicated to this kind of topic. They even have a book about it. Loads of info on here. http://tlio.org.uk/rural-planning-handbook/
  10. This may have been the culprit. Caught in a trap
  11. In progress. There is already wire mesh down that is cable tied to the lower bar. The grass has grown through so it doesn’t show. I will put more pictures up as I progress. Thank you for the comments
  12. Lost 2 birds on Saturday night. One was in a nest in some thistles outside the run which is fair enough, natural selection. The other was grabbed and pulled through the bars. Then last night, two hens. One jammed in the bars, as if it was being dragged through and got jammed, the other, dead on the inside of the cage but next to the bars. The run is 30 foot by 12 foot, has a chicken wire roof and sheep netting pinned flat around the ground that starts inside the runnsnd soreads outside there is no sign of entry to the run.
  13. I was more commenting on the ‘under arm, pump up action’ on this Weihrauch
