  1. Hi Guys Took my two sons ferreting today for a local keeper. We got six before the rain started again! One had a bad case of my I think it's quite early for us in the north, is anyone else seeing it yet?
  2. Sorry to hear of your loss Ben. Sounds like he was a big part of your life. All the best, M.
