The ever-popular Hampshire Country Sports Day returned to the Bereleigh Estate in East Meon on Sunday, September 11.

This annual favourite in the Hampshire social calendar again attracted flocks of families and friends – both human and four-legged – to watch, shop, eat, drink, participate and share their love for the countryside.

Main arena attractions included the ever-popular terrier racing, falconry and impressive hunting and hounds displays.

Demonstrations were given by the famous fly fisherman Charles Jardine, gundog breeder Nick Gregory, and countryman Chris Green.

Visitors could also have a go at sports such as clay pigeon shooting, run by Olympic medal winner Richard Faulds MBE, air guns and archery.

A dog show saw prizes given for the prettiest bitch, handsomest dog, best child handler, waggiest tail, scruffiest dog, best puppy and best veteran.

And, the popular ‘Gun Dog Scurry’ returned, as did another crowd favourite: the Lurcher and Terrier Show, featuring simulated coursing followed by whippets and terrier racing.
