    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Parakeets are now on the general licence. All well and good. The rangers in Richmond Park have been trying to cull them as mentioned in my post above. They are not getting on very well.

    Fishing in the Fog

    Ah got you. Yes in the day OK. Have a go at night when it is truly dark, not so simple. If there is some light then yes.

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    That is very interesting. Everything I have read and been told suggests that they are not native. The story as I understand it is that they moved from Scandinavia to Scotland and have gradually been working their way down the country (the UK just to be clear). Which is why to billy fish...

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Good to see you chaps from the provinces concerned about the great metropolis 😊. You have it back to front though. London is full of bunny huggers and most of the votes walking about London parks are against culling anything. The decision to cull parakeets was taken in the face of their...

    Fishing in the Fog

    You are being very modest. There are plenty of people who couldn't do that in the dark. Me for one.

    Strikes me you had a very good day all at a cost of just £20.

    Goo sander or merganser ?

    Don't bother with the authorities, as ever utterly useless. Do you have any otters about? They will sort out those chicks. Otherwise try scaring them off, they are quite nervous birds. What is certain is you don't want them there.

    Lions in SA

    I am not sure what the selection rules are. Is he eligible for the Lions if he has played for France? Anyway the home nations need to have a look at some of those French midfield players 😎.

    car damage

    As westie says the truncated shooting season hasn’t helped. And during lockdown more people have been wandering round the countryside in places they shouldn’t be making shooting more difficult. These people many walking their dogs have pushed deer into areas they don’t usually go and made...

    Lions in SA

    Slade is a better centre than all those picked but the reason Daly is picked is clear, goal kicking. Without Halfpenny and Sexton the party has only Biggar and Farrell as reliable kickers and neither has Daly’s length. And of course Daly was in the test team in 2017 so Gatland and Jenkins...

    Lions in SA

    The selection at centre highlights a weakness in British and Irish rugby. How do you get a decent centre selection out of that lot? Is Daly at 13 the answer to who kicks at goal if Hogg and Russell play and Farrell doesn’t?

    car damage

    They need thinning out everywhere. I drove past a field in South East England recently which contained a herd of at least 250 deer. Fallow of course. You really don’t want to hit a big one of those.

    Hook Keepers on a Fly Rod - Yea or Nay?

    Never use them for all the reasons you describe.

    car damage

    That is terrible luck JP but if it is a new car don’t mess up the warranty. With the lack of stalking during lockdown we are going to see a lot more of this and in some surprising places.

    Wading studs

    Thanks for that. It was a very small shelf in my case!

    Wading studs

    I put them round the outside both sole and heel but that is just me. My simms studs went in the bin after one trip - those that were still there and hadn't already fallen out.

    Wading studs

    Until recently all their studs were designed principally for vibram soles though you could put them in felt (I did). Now they have a new stud - in addition to the usual ones - especially for felt soles. Terrific product.

    MOURINHO - NEW JOB

    Contracts don't work that way any longer. Strictly he has been on enforced leave since they "fired" him and paid monthly, free to find a new job but once he starts the new job Spurs stop paying him. So as Auldghillie says, he has saved Spurs a lot of money.

    Wading studs

    This is spot on - there is a reason cheap studs are cheap, they aren't any good. Tungsten all the way - as to which see Tangled's post.
