    Out on Derwent Edge the other evening, which is well known for its grouse shooting in the past. Managed to shoot some without injury. In fact I was tripping over the blighters. Fuji Xt1 55-200mm.

    It was quite funny, met a chap toting a 500mm canon on the way down, fully kitted up in camo, he hadn't got a frame. When I told him I was tripping over them he seemed a little narked :)

    Well done Nick. That first one almost looks staged. Excellent.
