Congrats on a great trip and on your 500th post GG. Thumb

I haven't progressed to pheasant catching yet. I'm just a beginner.

That's the most surprised looking blackbird I've seen when did you get that? Thumb

It was the most surprised looking blackbird I'd seen since Naomi Campbell fell off her high heels on the catwalk a few years ago. Very Happy

This was one of a group of three that took off in front of me not long after starting an early morning blat last summer.

I thought I'd just winged one. I didn't see this until I got home. It must have looked strange to anyone who'd seen me in the previous 40 miles. I wonder if it looked like it was waving. Grin

Original story here => What's that red thing coming towards ........

Thumb there are more actual roads in your neck of the woods than in the north geez, but they have the right elevation changes and much lower population/km2 Floor
