I've been out on the eaten turnip field today, second trip to new field, all the sheep doo doo has washed away, came away with 4 Roman coins and Irish halfpenny after a long lean spell and a few weeks away

It happens with lean spells, it soon turns around and you will be finding stuff, just got to put the time in, at least you know wher stuff isn't

That's because you found it all last year! ::g

Anyway you are not a real detectorist until you can identify the type of poo that you have just stuck your hand in by the feel of it alone! :D

You are not supposed to bring the sheep home with you M+MB, even if you don't find anything else, the sheep belong to somebody...โ€ฆโ€ฆ...that is unless they asked to come ????? If they did you should of stipulated, no pooing on the sofa,,,you will know next time ;) ::g

No sheep here tonight as I used the brut instead( they only follow me home when I douse in old spice)
Will report back again soon on blank session five.
