Gammon is one of my favourite pieces of meat and I have been looking at new methods of cooking it for a long time. So it was a pleasure to discover a new product that might help me achieve what could become a new glaze to add to an already favourite dish!

The start of 2011 has been exceptionally busy for us here in Kent and the feeling that Spring is nearly upon us has prompted some “spring cleaning” and nest building of our own. We have implemented lots of alterations to our computer and paperwork systems and we have sorted kit for the start of the bushcraft season when we will be rushed off of our feet!

The price of infrared trail and wildlife cameras has dropped over recent years making them affordable to most outdoor enthusiasts. We use a Keep Guard KG 550 and have had lots of fun and some interesting results with it.
