A Cheerful Beater

Great colours in this shot of a beater on a shoot in the Chiltern hills. Nice to see such a smart beater with a matching tie and flag combo!

You can set your watch by him

Last season I was lucky to meet this gentleman who has been living on the same country estate in Oxfordshire for the last 46 years. During the shooting season you can guarantee he will be out on the shoots walking the hedges with his stick tapping away at his own pace. I got chatting to him and learnt quite a bit about the history of the estate and its ancestors! This year I will try and get some more information from him – it’s gents like this that make the countryside such a wonderful place.
