I spy a CWD!

Hi all,
Today I saw some Chinese Water Deer, My first sighting of these funny little deer. I drive a lorry so I'm always on the look out for deer as I'm going about my rounds. I drove past Woburn Abbey and saw three CWD over the wall. I thought well that doesn't count they are captive. Five minutes later I see another one picking its way around the edge of a ploughed field this side of the estate wall. My drivers mate said "I bet you wish you had your gun?"
I explained that, that was poaching and that just to see a chink for the first time was reward enough. :D

Made my day it did :D :D

Hi Stone,
I had my teeth drilled in the end to release the pressure from the absess. The teeth come out after my Scottish trip. :D Lucky escape!
Wild Boar, yum sounds nice!
I've just watched Hugh Fearnley's fish program. Farm you own carp! I'm off to dig a pond in the garden. :D

I did a stint as a water baliff. The best bit of the job was shooting the cormorants. (DEFRA approved of course).

Hi Griff, Bloody things! We just buried them. They killed or injured rather alot of prize carp. Couldn't shoot the herons unfortunately, they also did alot of damage. I've seen the light now, fishing is rather boring compared to stalking. :D

Beowulf, I can think of many better things to produce than carp. I have farmed them for the last 15 years and can honestly say that the Polish are welcome to them. Hugh did a fine job of making them look tasty but I was not convinced! I would prefer to eat the cormorant I think.
How is the breath after having the abcess vented off!! :p

Hi Andy,
The breath is fine, Doesn't smell like I've been eating the gralloch anymore! I think you are right, its just another brainstorm I had. I don't think I will get around to digging a pond. I'm that busy right now I'm having trouble keeping up with my PM's and emails and phone calls from members of this site. Thank you all for your help advice and stalking opportunities. I'm very interested in any help offered. But with my teeth saga and Scotland and work I'm snowed under.
'BUT THANK YOU ALL'

We're not allowed to shoot either cormorants or herons but strange to say that quite a few have nasty accidents!

Paul,
Cormorants are quite nervous birds and I find that they often have a heart attack if a shot goes off close to them!!
