Hello all you lovely people & thanks for the invite Cath,
I'm Clint, 57 & living in Banbury, born in a village near Bicester, so most of my detecting takes me to a few farms near Banbury & Bicester, been detecting out with Dad for 30 years, before that bottle digging with him since I was 8, but at 91 he's slowing down a bit, so spending a lot of detecting on my own while having a word with myself!
Great to see you all, Combines are out starting the harvest ready for the mad few months,
so good luck out there all.
Clint :thumbsup:

Lovely to see you here Clint. Glad to hear the combines are out. Send them along a few fields to my permissions please - they are only just getting the hay in and those Cropped fields need clearing 8-)

Hello Clint and welcome in :thumbsup:

Fair play for your Dad just "slowing down" at 91....I have a feeling i would have started that a lot earlier :lol:
Well done though
Hope to see some finds once the season kicks off again, maybe a few from your bottle collection too :thumbsup:

Hello Stanslad, nice to see another name I recognise. Welcome to ‘the gang’.

Combines already, lucky you. I went and had a nose at one of my permissions tonight. Look what they look like :arrow: Oh, flipping heck. What’s that. Sorry everyone, I don’t know how to turn it but if you do a hand-stand it looks fine :D

Thanks for the kind welcome you lovely lot,
Yep, 2 big fields of Barley that was put in before the horrible wet weather last year have been cut, a big one next to the M40 is where the motorway cut through an iron age banjo enclosure when extended in the late 1980s early 90s & some of the soil spread on the field, so might have a wander as the mother in law is visiting :o
