I tried to convince Shane that 'A fence junction' for #76 couldn't have been the fence junction clearly mapped in the centre of the circle and that it must have instead been an unmapped one nearby but he'd have none of that. Turns out it was more of a four way junction with all fences meeting at the same point so I concluded that it was the unmapped fence coming from the west, rather than the mapped one from the east, that constituted the 'A' description.

Was also amused by 'In a watercourse' at #28. The control was actually 5m north of the watercourse so I decided that a setter must have tipped his waterbottle over the tree to let the water run down it so it wasn't the mapped one in the circle.

What about "30m" from fence corner? More like 3m.

That was one of the three we didn't go to.

I just did a comparison of the map and noticed it's exactly the same as we used last time, including all the little additions I put on and even the OOBs around the properties. I had been wondering why there was a short section of fence marked on this version just north of #85 but I recall now it's because I stuck a control on 'The fence/watercourse junction' last time and so drew in that short section of fence with the continuation symbol on each end so that it was a real feature. At least they got the updated version! I think we also did the track updates and drew on a whole bunch of extra dams in the south, hence why some of the dam symbols are bigger than others (the little ones are hand drawn with the big ones being the standard dam symbol, which I don't seem to have aligned to their actual direction).

What I also thought was amusing was that in two different instances, we had teams walking directly across our path. I had no idea where they were heading!

Probably lining up a sheep to crash tackle.
