Spring came at last. Its been a long wait but today I got myself a small trip outside to swing the detector a little bit. I went to have a look at a patch of forest I ve been driving past this winter and when snow finally began to thaw I had spotted some rusty looking stuff between some big rocks. I walked around in the little forest for a good while and found several trenches and a couple of collapsed bunkers. I also found two positions with some bigger rust still in place, not sure if it is for cannons or optics/searchlights but for sure it belongs to a nearby coastal fortification. I picked up some signals with the detector as well and found a few small bits that proves german activity, but the ground is still frozen deeper than the top 5 -10 cm. A slow start but hopefully things will pick up as the temperatures improves and I find the right spots to search, but the season is finally on so good luck to all searchers out there, and all you other I hope you ll enjoy the posts I ll keep sharing throughout the summer and autumn:)
