Hi Garri,

I feed a lot of woodpigeon, tho id be wary about buying from an untrustworthy source. I shoot all my own, which minimises the lead shot risk. Apply for you SGC and give it a go.

Cheers
Rob

Well maybe this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Garrett-Pr...932#vi-content

If your going to check a lot of birds it would pay for itself. Not 100% it would pick it up, but i could test within the next couple of weeks.
