My own Vicar of Dibley moment on shoot

Having pulled my wellies out from the cupboard under the stairs the bag they were in was rattling ? I then realised that 3 months of mud had dried out in the 3 weeks since I last used the boots so I emptied the mud in to the garden and went off to the shoot.

Now these welly boots were still caked in mud and now half a ploughed field had attached itself to the boots so went into on of the many grassy flooded hollows to wash the worst of the mud off.
Before I knew it I was flat on my bum waist deep in muddy water !

My 2 back pockets filled with water as I desperately did a shoulder press with my shotgun to keep it out of the water.
When I stood up the water drained from my pockets and down my legs filling the wellies form the inside !! 🙂 Luckily the lads were far too busy laughing to get a photo.

I then walked up and down those hills for 3 hours with a wet backside. Whenever possible I tried to turn my back to the sun and warm it through a little as there was still frost on the ground so bright but chilly morning – a perfect shoot day, apart from falling into water.
