I've got my pal Maggie staying with me at the mo and today we climbed Hengistbury Head to streatch our legs at lunchtime. We were walking along the top when this huge bird appeared in the path before us. It was my first pheasant! Maggie zoomed after it straight away - duh Maggie - you're supposed to point it first not flush straight away! I was so excited I didn't know what to do with myself. I sniffed around for ages but it wouldn't come back and I couldn't find it again. Boo. Pheasants are fab. I have a cuddly one I take with me to training class that I use in the retrieves. People laugh at me when I get it but I don't know why? It's serious business this retrieve stuff.
