  1. look forward to seeing the finished project. you have an incredible talent, I wish I had.
  2. Opinel knives are great an I have for as long as I can remember owned 1 or two. The carbon blades almost rust before your eyes but are very easy to get back to new with a bit of emery paper but getting one open that has got wet or left in a wet coat pocket can be a right beggar, best left on a radiator over night to shrink the wood back down.
  3. I don't think it was closed for profit more that it was attracting a lot of noise complaints, that became impossible to deal with. A real shame as it was a great ground and as said some good competitions. Thankfully we still have Griffin Lloyd shooting ground in the area, which has a great sporting layout.
  4. Sorry to hear you are having a hard time but you have definitely done the right thing and with a decent FEO you now don't have the stress of worrying about your tickets. What better way to de-stress than spending time out in the country? well done West Mercia and i hope you troubles pass soon.
  5. Did you find it close to any power lines as it looks like it has electrical burns on the feathers? I have seen a lot of birds and squirrels like it.
  6. Here he is. He looks more Staffy in this photo buy everything he dud was spaniel
  7. I had a staffy cross springer that my wife got from a rescue home. He was two years old at the time. He was an absolute natural, he would work cover all day long but would suffer with nettle stings and bramble scratches that drove him mad in the evenings due to his thin coat. He would also retrieve as good as most trained dogs but when it came to hide work, as soon as the gun went off he would be off taking the net and poles with him every time, he was a night mare.. he will always be one of my most memorable dogs God bless him.
  8. nice clip. some very good shooting and great to see your dog enjoying old age.
  9. The last two days I have been on, start the day bacon butties and coffee, first drive, two teams of 12, 12 shoot , 12 load, 15 minutes of shooting before whistle blows and you change over. break for refreshments, snacks then another drive, break for lunch then two more drives in the afternoon, same thing. at the end of the days shooting back to the pub for dinner. All in all, breakfast, lunch, dinner, 6000 clays over your head over 400 cartridges shot per person £175 per gun. David Beardsmore, shooting I defiantly recommend trying it
  10. I have got to episode 6 at the moment so might not have seen the years tally but with you 100% I think the three ewes did genuinely get to him and believed him when he told them he hadn't named them out loud.
  11. You are absolutely right, those that know about country life and him owning the farm for some time will need to take the production and his dubious, ignorance with a pinch of salt, but it is what makes the program so charming and a great watch.
  12. I can see your point and can understand to farmers that have struggled all their lives to make a go of what they have and don't have the endless amounts of cash to throw at projects and pay for help, it could be annoying. but for me I was hooked, by the very first episode. This program has the right balance of humour, facts and reality to give a lot of town and city folk a good insight into farming and maybe even make them want to learn more. It shows an entirely different angle to farming that country file and its woke propaganda could never get across. I really hope that this program runs for a few more series before all his money runs out. Is Caleb Gerald's son? Same surname.
  13. Right handed shooter, left ear is slightly worse but definitely damage to both. Like others have said when sounds go to a certain frequency I simply cannot hear them, things like watch alarms and the sound given out from volt/multi meters, which I use a lot. These sounds are masked by my tinnitus that is always the loudest thing in the room, I can sort of forget about the whistley, hiss but the sounds I mention above seem to make very loud or if some one mentions the word tinnitus, off it goes.
