 Gun shots?

Sounds like a gun going off in the broom head flats area. Anyone know what the banging is?

Probably the dockyard. There's been loads of noise down there off and on for past few weeks.

Could be although I’m at the top end of town just now and it sounds very ‘local’. Maybe some bam with an air rifle shooting pigeons or something

Fireworks probably. Getting towards that time of the year.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

Wont be an air rifle as they don't make a bang.

And I can't see it being a bird scarer as they are usually only used inn spring/early summer when fields have seeds in them. Also a week or so to early for pheasant shooting

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Bird scarer to get rid of the geese that are landing in fields in droves at the moment?

Clay Pigeon shooting?

Can do that in any farmers field.

Bird scarers (gas guns) will be in use as the winter oil seed rape and winter barley have all been drilled and germinated.

Could be someone out shooting pigeons I used to shoot the fields at the back of the Rennies garage at Wellwood on a still day the shot noise would carry miles.

Fireworks. Saw them from my back window.

UPDATE! Jannies tell me they had an Indian Wedding at QAHS, and this was down to them.
