We arrived slightly late and quickly found the hunt South of the meet. There was a sizeable police presence, which grew throughout the day, and bizarrely even some police from Nottinghamshire where present. As expected the bully boys who have been shadowing us for the past few weeks were also present but sabs didn't let that deter them and were quickly into the fields after the hunt.
It seemed to be a lacklustre day for the hunt who didn't seem sure what to do. Our opportunities to get into the fields after the hunt were limited due to the large number of stewards following us around but we were able to keep a close eye on them and were happy to see them pack up nice and early at 3pm.
Interestingly the Woodland Pytchley had a trail layer out (who was nowhere near the hunt), a bird of prey and terrier boys. If they're following a trail why would they need either the bird of prey or terriers. It seems clear that in their desperation to use as many of the loopholes in the hunting act as poosible that they are actually illegally hunting!
