Showsley Estate Shoot 15th December

Last Saturday I attended a fabulous shoot at the Showsley Estate, near Towcester with some pretty keen shots! We started the day with a brilliant duck drive, followed by five more mixed drives (mainly pheasant) throughout the day stopping for roast lamb in the shooting lodge at lunch time.  A great day for all concerned with a final bag of 373 finished off with homemade cake and tea in the lodge.

I am currently working on an album for each of the guns that the host is giving them as a momento of the day. Here is a selection of my shots from the day…..
