On Saturday we had our first day on the pheasants and partridges; that makes it sound very grand, but in reality, it was a walk/stand root around a mate's farm.
The weather was excellent, the dogs weren't TOO unruly (despite some - mine especially - getting into a quite incredible state of giddiness!), we managed to bag a few birds....but most importantly the company was fantastic, it was good to be out in the fresh air, and a blody good day was had by all. Isn't that what it's all about? (....and just to put the numbers into perspective, the total for the day was 7 pheasants, 6 ducks and 2 partridge)
