#1: Dawn in the field.

(visited by Phil Sharpe and Dawn Sharpe)

29-May-2004 -- An Ebay purchase which I had to collect from Hemel Hempstead is the excuse for this visit. We left Leicester at 09:00 on the Saturday morning and by 11:00 I had finished my business and we were on our way to Buckingham. The area was easy enough to find, just a short distance west of Buckingham town centre on the A422, although when we parked up we started walking up the wrong side of the hedgerow!!! Realising we couldn't get through this way we turned back to the road and through the metal farm gate on the opposite side of the hedgerow. The field was full of mother sheep with their lambs and no matter how much we tried not to disturb them by walking around the edge of the field we still managed to herd them to towards the CP!!!

We got the all important "All Zero's" photo and then the N,E,S,W views. Quickly we retreated leaving the sheep in peace, taking a shot of mother and baby on the way.
