The Shooting Post

Whilst walking our dogs over the fields yesterday, there were plenty of photographic opportunites from the dogs running at speed to the beautiful snowdrop popping up in the undergrowth. However, I have always walked past this shooting post, but today just seemed the right day to shoot it. 

Standing between two fields of which one borders a small wood, this post allows a gun a full swing to cover the area. I have always thought about the post having another use, but I need to see if there is any noctornal activity before I try shooting of a different kind!
