Shooting in the Scottish Borders


It's a beautiful autumnal day here in the Scottish Borders, warm as well as sunny. It's the first day that our neighbouring estate has 'shot' the field below our house. It's always interesting to see how high the birds come off the hill to the right of the picture, making it difficult for any but the better shots to hit them. If you click on the picture below you can see the guns standing in the field more clearly. The good news is that now there will be a plentiful supply of pheasants and that means pheasant pâté and Mrs. H's Pheasant-au-vin.......

Beautiful scene indeed.

Nothing like a pot roast grouse or pheasant and a good bottle of St Estephe.

Beautiful country. It's amazing that an island as densly populated as Great Britain can have so much open space. You are a lucky man!

I don't like to think about shooting birds but it looks like a beautiful day in a lovely piece of the countryside.
