I've looked in lots of places for the answer to this and thought the experts on ARRSE will know straight away. Thing is, I thought Game birds were pretty timid creatures and didn't hang about if someone looked at them never mind point something at them. There are six of these hooligans hanging about the area and posed quite happily whilst I clicked away with my old toy which still feels like a new one. They turned their beaks up at a bit of bread after a short while and preferred invisible seeds/amoebas Any takers? .... and counting!
