While digging one signal I heard Girlfriend go "Waaaaooooo!!" I looked up and she pointed towards the treeline and just above the treetops a huge White-tailed eagle soared. It was an amazing sight, and it is not often I ve seen this magnificent creature as close as today.
Girlfriend went off to see if she could spot where it had landed while I dug some more. When she returned I had dug out a German tent peg, a few more K98 casings, some uniform buttons and a whole bunch of nails and wire bits.
When there were no more signals to check we strolled to what looked like dumping pits. I dug the two where the Fisher gave good signals but other than a large horseshoe it was no interesting bits but rusted trash.
After a little break having some food and tea we went into the bushes to pick up one of the metal plates which I believe is from some German vehicle, which I ll make something from, and we carried it out of the forest and back to the car. By now we was a bit wet and cold so we decided to jump in the car and drive home to make some nice lunch and clean all the rust out of the car.
The weather report claims the winter is approaching fast now but I hope we ll get a few more trips out there before the season close.
