"The Dromia Rule"

Deer Stalking… reliable word of mouth recommendation from someone you know has undertaken such stalking being offered by a specific syndicate is best. Like other walks of life, stalking has its scammers. E.G., make sure there is deer, of the species sought, on the land being made available; that appropriate insurance is in place; that there is recourse for recompense if it all goes wrong. In addition, obtain and understand terms and conditions; consider the implications of allowing a syndicate leader to be a FAC mentor; make sure ‘coaches’ are suitably qualified; consider the quality of deer management, the construction & execution of a shooting plan and safety; determine if the land is over-shot.

If in doubt, contact BASC or similar.

Anyone considered to be a scammer will be banned without warning.

Yesterday afternoon, I was looking out of the study and could see:

    Muntjac - 25m away just wandering around and jumping up at the foliage
    Ring Necked Parakeet - 10m away in a tree and it remained there for at least a couple of hours
    Grey Squirrels - several

All of them are non-native and would have been easy safe targets and had I checked the river there would have been Amaerican Signal Crayfish too.

Dunno about the parakeet (screechers we call them round here), but at least 3 out of 4 are good eating. I remember years ago reading about some cunning sod who'd got a contract from DEFRA to cull signal crayfish somewhere, and was also making money selling the little blighters to restaurants.

But how long does a species have to be here before it is considered native? Afte all, go back far enough and none of us are.
