Right, despite thinking it was high time I up gunned and got a .243, the only thing on my mind right now is crows. Crows and jackdaws. Big bouncy flighty noisy things.
From 0416 this morning a pair of them were pounding on our bedroom windows from two sides or marching round the eaves above. I can only assume they were trying to land on the slippery aluminium sills in order to get at the house Martin nests tucked under the eaves.
So I'm at DEFCROW1 and they have to go. I've had little success picking them off with the .22LR by the squirrel (bird) feeders, so I need another plan. The lawn is about 4ac, open with backstops at some angles and not others so I'm thinking I need to draw them in. Off to RFD shortly to seek advice on decoys but I'd appreciate any suggestions!
