    Booked on!
    Having seen Mr Green at work age & sex an animal from what was left (dog v's deer incident) I think that he will be able to sort out out my attempts at aging!
    If you're doing your DSC L2 and want to get an expertly directed guide round the nodes and answer to what looks "abnormal" this could be a good chance to get your hands dirty and questions answered.
    The numbers are being kept low to ensure a good hands on experience, so if you're interested I would get your email in sharpish and for those that don't know Grizedale the cafe is right next door so a packed lunch can be avoided.
    See you there?

    I have emailed DI to see if they will do one in the South Central. I haven't heard of one this way.

    I have also seen Peter in action and without doubt a leading authority.

    I will also be going and as Treedave says this sort of knowledge will be invaluable for anyone doing L2 or for those who just want an improvement in knowledge etc.

    This should be an excellent event, Peter Green is one of the UK's leading deer vets. Worth saying that with the Post Mortem focus it's different than the last Grizedale Best Practice day.

    I'll be there if I can wriggle out of family duties!
