Spring this year, admittedly was a little late,but certainly got off to a good start, with the trout reservoirs producing great sport and some fine over winter trout. On the other hand, the wood pigeon shooting has not been too bad, although the rape seed crops in some areas did not really recover and are still a bit patchy. With the spring drilling late as well, this gave a chance for some fair bags of wood pigeon before the rain and sunshine fed the barley.
