Pheasants - dangerous species, need culling because they eat all the tomatoes in the greenhouse!

I haven't killed anything in a long, long time and I ain't about to start now. I am going to give him a good stiff talking to, when I catch up with him:mad1: I might even shut the greenhouse door. That will learn him.

I have just taken a photo of the prime suspect........... :lol-053:

What's the camera and lens?? My main camera is a Canon EOS 450d with a Canon EFS 18-55mm GP lens or Canon 75-300 zoom for distance shots. They all came from Amazon My dear lady got the kits for my birthday a couple of years ago. Some of my pictures in 'Photos' Like the Steam engine wheels, the American car etc Were taken with a little Kodak. You don't have to spend a fortune these days to get a reasonable shot. A camera, a good eye and a steady hand or preferably a tripod is all you need. Oh yes and carry a small one wherever you go. You never know lol

Keep your PC away from them as well, as they are quite partial to trying to eat your cursor, it would seem!!

Hi FF,


Have shot gun will travel,But Stake out in greenhouse may have problems as I have never shot in greenhouse before, and could not guarantee health of greenhouse or tomato plants as any thing with in a 50 yard area of my gun is in dire straights, not the group.The last place I lived the pheasant's would come in and bore down through our parsnips and just leave the outer shell in the ground.That's when I gave up gardening and took up shooting.

Regards Snowbirds.




I have just been out to water me greenhouses to find that a bloomin' cock pheasant has pecked at all me lower tomatoes. Yesteday might have been the glorious 12th but today will be the 'orrible 13th for that feller me lad, if he don't watch it.:sad::mad2:
