I was last there on Wednesday afternoon with the intention of going up yesterday but with the weather been so bad I thought I’d let them stay under cover, when we got there this morning it was clear to see they had spent the day around the pens, every feeder was empty in both pens and they were hungry, this is something I really like to see, I’ve started hand feeding wheat in a few spots just to try and keep them where I want them for the next couple of weeks. Our first day is 6 weeks today so if the pheasant gods look favourably on me they should be a few about, another thing I was pleased to see was the amount of birds around the forestry pen, we only put 200 in there this year ( half of what normally goes in ) and I’ve had the usual problems with dog walkers but they seem to have come back in, one thing that’s bothering me is the forestry pen feeds the piggeries drives and with there only been half the amount I think that them drives might be a bit light this season, but we’ll see what comes into them over the coming weeks I'm amazed you let Andy drive that! Or are you hoping he discovers that dyke you tumbled in?? 1 Quote Link to post
