Not a bad start to the first drive, had Dave been on pegs 1 or 2 then the tally would have been trippled in my opinion, so many birds it was like the OK Corrall!
Ben helped us out as we were down 3 guns, thats his first bird ever!

It had rained solid all morning but they still had observed the silence. It stayed its hand whilst Ben and I shot a couple of rounds of 20 bird supersport;
The shooting on display was quite good considering the weather, Supersport is a really compact discipline and great fun for a fiver!
So not a bad day, remembering lost friends and relatives and enjoying a few minutes of 20 bore saluting, Oh I managed 13 out of 20 which is 4 better than Ben!

So it was off to the wood for a shoot, first 3 drives were moderately busy, we were 1 gun down so a few birds slipped through. Still managed to bag 3 nice Cock birds even if our cartridge ratio was all to pot;
