Alan,we had a flock of about 30,which every mourning would turn up at the crack of dawn..
We never had a limit and about 10 were shot in the first couple of weeks.
But they certainly learn very soon to avoid the danger..And now they keep well out of the danger area..
We had to fill in all the relevant forms for the E.A. on how many we shot ect..
But as yet they have not returned..

A stretch of the Wye i fish is visited every mourning with the black death..
They take some huge fish,large chub and roach go down the hatch with ease,i have watched them descend on to the river and take many fish right under my feet.
I have seen them take jack pike also,i dispise them..Even though it was mans fault that they came inland,due to the rape of the seas.
Wilson says 48,million roach-fish are going down the throats of the black death every year...
