I decided late night whilst at work that I would take the shotgun for a walk this morning and put a few decoys out on some peas. When I woke up this morning the sun was shining and all looked right with the world, unless of course you are decoying and you dont want the decoys to shine.
I arrived at the farm a bit later than intended at 0845. Took a walk around a field of peas near where I had parked, nothing moved. Oh well. I then decided to walk around the edge of farm, it does not take too long as its about 250 acres. The fields are mostly wheat with four fields of peas dotted about. I was walking round the outside of a wheat field, the outside had been trimmed, when I saw the back end of a rabbit next to the crop. Game on I thought. As I got closer and I could see more of it, it was only about half size if that. I stopped to see where it was going, then it noticed me and scarpered.. Next thing I know a fox comes running round he corner and almost jumps into the long grass. It then run up and down looking for it. All the time I am stood about 35 yards away watching what was going on. This went on for a few minutes until I moved, at which point the fox thought oops and run off.
to be continued later this evening as I now have to go to work
