Narrative:
On approach to a one way private airfield, an unexpected tailwind was encountered. The pilot was additionally forced to hold off the touchdown due to noticing unexpected loose stones on the approach end of the paddock. The plane was landed normally on the remainder of the paddock, however the grassed surface had a pronounced undulation which greatly reduced the braking effectiveness. The plane was almost brought to a stop, however it made contact with some bushes at the far end, resulting in one propeller blade being broken.
