    Not much beats a good day out on the roosters, that's for sure.

    Left home at 9.30am.....16 birds between 2 of us and home by 2.30.
    With the wind gusting to 30knts at times it made for some very fast shooting with birds appearing like fighters on strafing runs !!

    Well been a whirlwind season with plenty more birds taken since my last post. This year I took the whole of May and first week of June off work to pursue waterfowl and I was not left disappointed with the results
