The day started out with the team meeting for a hearty breakfast at the shoot lodge. After breakfast, pegs were drawn and a shoot briefing was given before heading out for the first two drives of the day, after which elevenses were taken in the field. Another drive was shot, followed by lunch, then the final drive. Overall, it was a great day of brilliant weather, with challenging but well presented partridge.
