Back out on the fields again yesterday for a few snatched hours . Same field as my last visit and an even further change as the white blossom hedgerows are fading to a summer green , a few days away and the changes are quite drastic .
This was a late afternoon early evening visit for a few hours and with the sun shining it was T shirt weather and as pleasant as it was soaking up the warmth the downside was how rock hard the ground had become . My last visit was a gentle reminder that I needed to sharpen up the blade on my spade and with that job done it made my digging a little easier . It was a good thing too , plenty of signals which just about resulted in a pocket full of rubbish .

The usual assortment came my way as to be expected but in amongst all the scrap there usually is a few goodies to be found on this piece of land . I wasnt complaining though and despite the dry run of finds I have had previously and with this short outing looking to be not that much different , at least the sun was shining which was a bonus .
My best find and decent signal was this little buckle and they are one of my favourite items to find and I now have quite a collection on the go so when this popped up I was quite pleased .

I stuck mainly to the lower part of the field and with only a couple of hours it made sense to stay in one area and in amongst the rubbish was an interesting little clasp type object and a young head Victoria penny , that was about it for me , short session but fun .

Love those buckles. Nice, substantial and tactile! Not quite symmetrical I note, not seen that before but I like it :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
