Went out with Uncle Russ and another bloke new to the detecting game today. On the road at 7.30 for a 45 min trip up towards Talbot. Detecting was reasonably pleasent up till around 11am. After that the temp got up around the 30 deg mark and things were rather much less reasonably pleasent. New bloke found a 2.36 gram nugget and three little ones for a total weight of 2.80 grams. He is very stoked. I found 4 bits as well, my biggest 0.41 grams and a total weight of 1.02 grams. Uncle Russ found about 15 pieces....as he often does. Largest piece 1.70 grams and a total weight of 5 grams. 8.8 grams and zero ant bites between us for the day. Bloody March Flies were out in their thousands. I am rather rooted. Have some nugget pics, will post them tomorrow after a large sleep.
