shovel leaner 7,648 Posted October 3, 2021 Report Share Posted October 3, 2021 I had my first days loading yesterday , on the neighbouring shoot . Because of Convid 19 there was no loading last season so it was good to be back with all the other loaders. And Christ we had a good laugh, I’d forgotten what it’s like to socialise. We didn’t let the fact that it was raining dampen our spirits ( we’re not made of sugar after all). My good friend who used to be the keeper here moved to Northumberland and is doing well up there having already had 15 days . So it was good to see that the new keeper, who is a young chap seems to have made a good job of things and the birds looked in good shape, with good tails , and flew well . The guns were selective and picked some spectacular birds . So all in all , in spite of the weather a good start . I’ve got my first day on Saturday and to be honest with you, I am looking forward to it , but I’ve got a busy week, putting pegs out and cleaning vehicles, plus a million and one other things that I’ve put off till the last minute……”why do it today, when I can put it off till tomorrow “, is my mantra 3 1 Quote Link to post
