It certainly is, mainly because they love to do it. My two were on the go all day, as we were walking back to the cars they were still checking out the undergrowth.Great to see Spinone working
Top pic, the magpies up here are pairing at the moment and ar'nt situationally aware , have taken a couple in the last weekA great afternoon topping feeders, it’s only been five days and some are empty already, this current cold weather is certainly emptying the grain trailer!
Took the Sako 85 out today in 22-250 loaded with 40 grain vlds moly coated and at 4400 FPS it certainly does for magpies! A puff of black and white feathers and a giggle from me
