Fieldsports Britain – Living with Lyme

The effervescent Tim Pilbeam has good days but he has bad days – and those bad days are down to Lyme disease, which he caught from a tick bite 20 years ago. He has been keeping a video diary for the last two years. Here’s what it’s like – and what he’s trying out to cure it.

Meanwhile, we were at the British Shooting Show at the weekend – and we lost control of the Fieldsports Channel News Stump. Find out what happens. Plus the Royal Agricultural University, Cirencester, is out shooting pigeons, and we join them. There’s Hunting YouTube and the real News Stump, too, in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain
