We didn't give the carrion crows any quarter Sham.  Rooks we sort of liked, as they were good at getting grubs out the fields.  Wireworm and such.
 
Needed thinning if they were getting into newly sprouted corn.  (Wheat, oats or barley).
 
Coypu we didn't have up north, but wbefore the bad winter killed them off in droves, they made lovely flight ponds in the fens,.....ate out great patches of the common reed.  Was water where there hadn't been any for decades at least.

Well we sprouted the peas & beans & got them in the dirt. Amazing how a 1/4" plant can build a golf ball sized root ball with a 3" tap root in a week!
Now we're trying again for the pepper seeds to sprout. No luck so far.

Squirrels also don't like lead. Shot two last week with a .22. I made a stew (first time). It was very good! Hint. Cook low and slow for tender meat! Also, two doesn't make a lot!
