Just spent a fantastic weekend in Spain at La Nava, at what must be the most professional and well organised partridge shoot in Spain, where we were pampered and spoiled and fed delicious tapas between drives, two secretarios each, (loaders) one to load, which they do from a little seat with integrated tray with cartridges all arranged end up for easy loading. You hand the unbroken gun down to the seated loader and quick as lightening he hands you the other. Meanwhile another man stands behind with a clicker, and counts each and every bird, shouting a loud BRAVO for every decent shot you take! A great time, two days shooting and a fun team of guns, some Austrian, some English.
It was all the stuff of dreams and we were very lucky to be guests of a very good Austrian friend of mine whom I met while at Cambridge and we have always stayed in touch, he loves the grouse! And we love the Perdices!
