Since last evening the temperatures had dropped 4 degrees. When I parked the car in the forest it showed 0.9 degree Celsius and the forest floor felt stiff and frozen. It is depressing to know it will all soon be frozen hard as concrete. I was a bit late today so I only had three hours before dusk. Around 15.46 - 16.00 it is already too dark to dig. I started off next to yesterdays dumping pit and continued a systematic search. I was not as lucky as yesterday, there were signals everywhere and I tried to dig them all, but it was mostly rubbish to find. I couldn`t find any dumping pits only single objects and lots of wire. The last half hour I made a few finds that was put in my bag, some flares and a small part from a handgrenade, so at least I have some stuff to clean tonight.
A Karbid lamp.
A mini dumping pit, a small keychain and a handfull of horseshoe ice cleats.
I took a few moments trying to learn how to use the new camera. Here an old bird house someone had put up on a tree ages ago.
A horse mane comb in a sad condition.
The little clasp gave a perfect signal 77 and when I started digging it out and found the corner I was sure I had a dog tag..
Mr.Bear have been on a rampage through the forest. Every ant hill above a certain size had been dug out by him.
The handgrenade part.
And finally the three flares. I hope they will look good when emptied and cleaned up.
