Ten-year-old Will Ivens, after a successful duck flight, holding his first gadwall. With him is the family’s eight-month-old GWP, Lochy, who retrieved Will’s prize. Will has had a great season bagging quite a few duck, pheasants, partridges and woodcock. He’s now taking every opportunity to go pigeon shooting until next season.
