    just a post for those that (like me) leave a shoot with a piss poor score... as i did, baffled into 37 ex 50 at the welsh GP.

    got back on the horse, went down to the club, decided that the rig needed a rezero after all, and dropped 49/50 on south dorset's GP course afterwards... (i'm sure target 50 was sticky... but i guess we'll never know). To top that, having heard them calling all afternoon, Dave pointed out a family of Peregrins... first time i've seen one and i've been sure of it... and here was 2, the 3rd just there for a split second before going out of sight.

    Dave said it would have been topped if i'd had my camera with me... i said it would be topped if they'd stopped on a pigeon that we saw passing... on the way home i was thinking about the stubborn target no 50...

    entry in mental diary tonight simply says "bugger"

    Fair play Rob, good to know you can put it down to a blip but doesn't bode well for the rest of us on Sunday!...still as long as the shield stays in the "right" county :p

    As for pegs, simply awesome birds but sadly having a very bad run elsewhere in the country. Reports of persecution are the highest this season than they've been for several years, some targeted, some indiscriminate, all appalling :(
