On Monday I was dropping off a Gold Ring that I promised to one of our landowners who is one of our oldest permissions. We don't do much on this land anymore due to other priorities. However, as we are scratching around until harvest I asked what Bird Cover they had this year. Mostly it was areas that we have done to death but there was 2 area that we hadn't done; x2 1/2 acre plots.
I also met their family friend & got offered another garden lot permission, we will give that ago sometime soon.
The heat got close to 30 degrees today & that right at my limit, nearly packed it in early but we cover both areas in 4 hours 45mins.

4 Roman Coins - 1 of Julia Mamaea which I need:
I got a nice Hammered Penny of the Common-Wealth 1649-60 (My best example)
Bit of a strange Roman Mount/Fitting
Bits & pieces...
What Is It Copper Coin (Thanks to Bramblefinds, this has been IDed as a German Jetton, must be fairly early as its very thick);

They are small strips on ploughed fields that are left free of crops & are normally planted with maise for pheasant's to hide in over the Winter. Its part of the shoot management, so as to hold the raised birds on the shooting grounds.
