Mark Ripley swaps rifle for shotgun and heads out to thin out some corvids that are tucking into the farmer’s maize silage. Heading out the day before to build a hide, Mark gets out at first light to ambush the crows and possibly a Canada goose or two! Then Chris Parkin gets to grips with the latest kit from Kahles – the Helia TI-25 thermal imaging monocular.
