Yep enjoyed it too, especially when I fell out of the tree and then, to cap it off, the blessed ladder collapsed while I was up it.

Actually took the lgu to Meon Valley AGC today, to set it up. Blessed multi-adjustable mounts are a nightmare on a springer.

You can’t shoot them in the cold 

I tried last week and couldn’t feel the pellets to put them in

More work done today seeing no rifle to shoot as being serviced.

 

Weather was rather mixed, sunshine, light rain and a 5 minute hail storm. But we got 8 more targets out, with another 3 or 4 that need a bit of clearing. 

 

A bit of bird watching done whilst drink tea with a robin, coal -breast-, finch and a male pheasant. Blizzard also out and about.

 

Plenty of tea drunk but no cake. Hoping rifle might be back for next weekend.

Yes also found out the range finder Holly uses measures a bit short by a few yards. A branch supposedly 58yds was actually about 56. 

 

A few larger trunks that have fallen down need clearing which opens up some possibilities of cracking longer lanes. If it's as cold as yesterday going to get a fire going.
