The rhythms of my year revolve around the UK shooting season. Not because I shoot – I did plenty of hunting for the pot in Africa as a girl, the UK practice of using pheasants as target practice doesn’t particularly appeal – but because the gamekeeper on the estate I prefer to detect on gets very uptight if I’m anywhere in sight during the season. So from early September to 2nd Feb I’m elsewhere; this year, I’ve been able to extend my research to neighbouring estates, which has been very cool.
But now the Glorious 2nd is almost upon us, and I realise that I have not done the usual winter evening job of logging last year’s finds on my mapping database. I have an awful lot of finds to catch up with, and very little time; apologies for silence, whilst I sort out what feels like THIS many finds…
