    Well that's it now the fun starts with all the feeding watering and then trying to stop them from going too far

    Great spot you visited. The lake is home to the Crested Grebe, amongst other birdlife

    She pointed and flushed a cock bird today; the shot would have been awkward so we watched him away ...

    ive never been so ashamed as when my gsp pointed a covey of quail held them mesmerised untill i was within 3 feet then on release flushed them.
    i managed 5 shots with no result on covey flush and late departers.
    the look he gave after running around finding nothing to retrieve would have shamed trump.

    Had the old fella been alive youd have probably got a verbal or two as well.Ive never forgotten a couple of my goose misses at NATO and the sound of a big black rotweiller swede giving a bloody dismissive grunt !!!!.GSP at least had a modicum of sympathy as he sat his wet arse on my pack after you two had finished with him!
    and GSP probably never forgiven you for sending him over to retrieve that goose I bloody near dropped into me cuppa tea that day on three shot pond.the only saving grace was you dropping the grizzling old bitch of a goose that harassed my bastard until he flew into my steel barrage.
    I have many pleasant wonderful memories of two real canine characters the likes of which i doubt i'll see again and tragically for them and you both taken too early!!
