Been quiet lately on here apart from the lucky few . I haven't been out for about 6 weeks . No permissions at the moment . Really missing it . Cant wait for day out digging and good bit crack with fellow detectorists. I'm guessing most of you are on the same boat .

I have the available land but just not the time right now. But when I do it will likely be like concrete if this dry spell keeps up. But the finds will keep! :thumbsup:

It seems quiet all round at present, even facebook groups have slowed up
Quite normal for this time of year though

Whats happened to your permissions Joe?...or are they all dry as a bone or seeded/cropped?

Oh blow it, I've decided to do some detecting next week in case there's no more good rain until winter! I guess that the pasture should still be diggable, but if quite dry then it'll just be certain selective targets! It's been a good while since last there so even more looking forward to it now though guess the grass is growing? :D

We were chatting about this the other day and it's as Bruce says - it's quiet all over, really. There's another point to factor in, which is that we here have a membership which by and large is an experienced one so we don't get the volume of queries that you do from newcomers to the hobby.

It's always been a cycle which is perhaps more noticeable on a small forum like ours is at present. Small, but perfectly formed ;) :thumbsup:

Not been on or active detecting for a while either, I have been rather busy with some things that needed my full attention, although popping in from time to time and have some catching up to do with some very interesting items that have been found by members of the forum, so sorry if some older threads start re-appearing at the top of the pile from my comments and apologies for those I may miss when I get round to it

Just three weeks ago I was employed full time and now P45 in hand............long story!!.......... now…….. retired :Party: , the weight of the world has lifted from my shoulders and my glass is more than half full and have left work on my terms :D :D and looking forward to more time detecting in the week whenever I want to :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Also have volunteered at my local museum to help on the PAS and undertaking a bit of training for recording purposes

Have been dealing with four treasure cases ongoing, now active with the coroner being informed through the very long process until resolved, possibly more than a year if past experience proves, handed all of them to the FLO in person mid-April 2021

Had a very quick satisfactory outcome to a legal matter that has been dealt with in my favour by a solicitor (unrelated to detecting, more to do with…………political matters!! )

Now in the full time employment (unpaid) of the wife who has a list that seems to keep growing of things to keep me busy, anyone know where I can get cream to sooth whip marks on my back, the only thing I miss about work is the rest :lol:

Getting on for 6 weeks since i was last out.
Lucky that i still have miles of beach 10 mins away to tide me over until Harvest inland.
May take a trip down and check out the sand coffers in the next week or so.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

I was out for the first time with my club a couple of weeks ago, we couldn't get a site last week and we are taking neice and nephew to the zoo today as they are visiting, so won't be out this week either.

Might make it out for a few hours with the club next week so will see if I have anything to share then.

I tend not to post much unless I think it might be useful or interesting and at the moment with the hours I work I don't have much of either!

I was having withdrawal symptoms after not looking in for a few days. You can all guess why I’ve been busy. Not going too bad with training my latest 4 legged pal but I have to admit I’d forgotten how ‘b’ painful it is. I ran out of plasters last week end ! Started to feel like a blood donor 😳
Enough of that. I am told I’m still welcome even though I don’t even have a detector 😪 who needs one anyway. I’m still finding 😳 :D
One of my old favourites, another 6p. It’s all down to the eyes and, of course the huge amount of experience I have at finding them 🤪
Waiting for my pals to check out a very interesting smell I was just glancing around and thought, that’s interesting. A little gully washed out under some big old trees by the heavy rain. So guided all the legs in that direction and started walking along it. Ooh, a little button, picked up, brown and covered in muck, gave it a thumb rub and bingo, a 6p. Top pocket job :thumbsup:
Took a bit of cleaning but here it is.
The thrill never goes away, does it :D

(Well, it’s something to look at ain’t it)

Ooh, you lucky, lucky... I'd have been retired this year if I hadn't saddled meself with buying a house last year. No worries though - retirement will be full- or part-time (depends how I feel) next Spring :thumbsup: Hope you get to enjoy yours, Steve, and pleased to hear all is well in your world :thumbsup:

Too right, you are. We'd organise a search party armed with big sticks if you disappeared ;) Glad to hear you're enjoying time with the 4-legger, and hope you come across a fair few more eyes-only finds.

Just goes to show Val, that unlike most of the general public, it was probably genetic from Pre Historic times to be looking for something out of the ordinary on the floor. Back then it was probably, food, animal tracks or something to make fire from. Now it is coins, amongst other dropped items. Even if none of us had ever taken up detecting, we are probably the people wandering around, looking on the floor, keeping our wits about us and having an enhanced sense of our surroundings .
They can train dogs to sniff out all kinds of things these days. Wonder if that extends to coins. :idea:
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
