Sadly due to being a numpty I have deleted the pics from the camera so you will have to put up with a video clip until I can work out what I have done!
I will be at a bowling tournament with the kids tomorrow so no wandering around with a gun!

Spartacus enjoying the second drive, this time of year the woods are stunning to see and we are priviliged to be able to spend a few hours in good company in pursuit of game.
A couple more drives after coffee produced a few more birds but we didnt see the woodcock this week. The birds flew well and were where we actually thought they might be! Things are definetly looking up and the Beaters and guns seemed very happy!

Typical Kiwi as well!
I had an interesting evening last night at the IWM for the monthly HBSA lecture, it started with 3 pints of Fireside in the 3 stags and ended with a G&T on the train home!
The published lecture didnt happen sadly due to illness but members stood in and gave a 15 minute effort each, some of the subjects for discussion were ver4y interesting and I have a couple of bad photos below. I wont be identifying them just yet as they are subject to an online quiz on arsse!
Now I owned one of these and sold it years after the ban to fund a stalking rifle!
This is an odd one, if you can identify it I'll be impressed, if not I'll post the other side.
This isnt what it seems either, I was intrigued by the tag on the trigger guard and I must get around to asking!This last one was very interesting and much to the lecturers surprise but not ours a member in the audience had one!
He also gave some great reloading data in the Q&A session, the member not the lecturer!
And now for something different;

Part of the line up and although I didnt hang around at the end for a drink I would like to congratulate Roger 2 for his exceptionally well behaved dogs.Now for another week of soulless commutiung up to London.
A little humour!

Although today I will be selling poppies outside of ASBOs I will be shooting tomorrow and doing the whole remembrance thing on Sunday before going to work in someones office again!

Still its an eventful weekend ahead, first day on our own little shoot, Remembrance Sunday and apparently the cousins over the pond may have elected someone who claims to be black!
Seems more Eau de Nil to me (as they say in 1980's smoke grenade training classes).
At least I'll be able to attend more HBSA meetings and I will now have to find some weekend stalking.

A real pity that evrything is happening this week as I have so much work to do and so little time to even moan about it!
Ah well all will be clearer on saturday. See you all there!
P.S. I'll be posting a list of rifles and shotguns that I need to sell soon, stay in touch.
In the meantime here is a picture of Macey, one of Sassy's daughters with her kennel mate Amber;

The day was made more comfortable by being ferried around in the farm defender;
I did manage to acquire an interesting box of ammo though:
