Badgers destroyed an entire maize cover , so we have electrified the rest , pheasants started to develop adult plumage and most partridges now out of their pens , we release them a dozen at a time , so they don't form one huge covey . The neighboring estate have put down over 20,000 birds , so hopefully some will come our way , too . First day on 2nd November !
I've just seen about 30 standing in a huddle in a lay-by near here (East Surrey). Looks like they are hoping for someone to feed them.
