Summer Solstice…

WELL, not quite, but only a little out.

Can't believe it's that time of year already and things are so lush and green, it seems impossible that things could ever look as stark as they did just a few short months ago when the countryside was in the grip of the deep freeze.

Days of finger-numbing shooting seem a distant memory, but preparations for next season are never far away and I've been helping build rearing pens and make sure all is ship shape for THIS season's birds. Pics to come.

I must say, walking the dog early on a still summer morning is pretty special – what an incredible country we live in.
