    Some average opening weekends then. We were down on previous years. Only 37 mallards and an eel for two days. Still three months to go. There will be more swat ups.

    Pretty quite for us on Thornton Lagoon. 6 mallards ,1 Parrie and a Pheasant for the weekend. It was the same all over the lagoon, number way down . Some shot OK but it took all day for them. I believe the Edgecumbe floods kept the birds in the flooded maize paddocks and as there is water and food there, that's where they stayed. Got a visit from the F/G guys and a police man whilst we had finished and were having a beer and lunch on the sand dunes. Very pleasant indeed.

    Pretty happy with our start to the season, 6 swans, 6 parrys and 22 Mallards for Saturday. 4 Mallards for Sunday morning with a few missed opportunities trying to get the young fella onto one. Monday evening only saw one on the deck due to some poor shooting.

    Another 3 tonight. 4 landed from nowhere, couldn't see them in the trees, and another was circling. Wings cupped, landing gear down, and he ended up doing a backwards flip, with a splitting headache. The other 4 took off, 2 hidden, other 2 flying past the Mai mai to land in a heap on the bank.

    One duck heard nothing seen.
    We had bell birds singing right up to dark flying between the gum trees.
    As dark got closer we could here the other bike coming home from the big pond with @Sean and his mate on board.
    Then we heard the quacking as the lent caller I gave sean was heard blowing from a nearby hill.Didn't fool me son
