Yet this morning things certainly looked better. I found a supply of quick lighting charcoal and snagged enough bags for the rest of the season, everyone turned up scarily early and the birds really flew very well. New guests who are hoping to become syndicate members next season turned up. Things went really well. I bagged a cock bird going back from the beating line, Elmer Fudd managed a nice Cock Bird, Big sticky managed a lovely woodcock. The dogs enjoyed themselves immensly and best of all young Edmund bagged a nice cock bird.
The bag was as usual small but well earned and will eat well;
