2nd December 2015 the forecast was for rain and sleet on a northerly wind.

Car parked at the farm 3 fields away so the plan was to search the leeward side of the field so if the bad weather came in I could at least have some shelter behind the hedge.

Was it luck for these finds or skill, no it was just luck.

Its funny how some thing as simple as a strong wind can make us change plans about exactly where to detect resulting in good finds. Maybe they were lost there for exactly the same reason, if in that area the bad weather and strong winds normally come from the north was the person who lost them also sheltering from the wind and rain?.

I am with Oxgirl, I love that little bear its so cute. Is it silver?, any idea of age?.

Thank you.

No hallmarks on the bear and it was also badly damaged and split open at the back.
