A dead chicken or a duck works for me and a road kill pheasant or rabbit would do the same.

Of late, my fox bait has been in big demand. I've got a fox at night time trying to did under the trap to get at it and during the daytime, I've got a buzzard after it. He's going into the trap without setting it off. he's flown out of it twice already today.

I set the fox trap at four o clock last night and by half past, I had to go and let the buzzard out. He's pretty desperate for a feed, so I'm going to put some food out for him. He can have the neck and giblets from the chickens that I prepare for the house.
We have a pair that have nested just across the road from us for the last couple of years. I don't know whether its one of the pair or one of this years youngsters but I reckon a little help wont go amiss.
