Run to the hills!

Sometimes you have to make spur of the moment decisions, and as the result of an early evening e-mail, after being out shooting bird images all day, I put everything on charge, grabbed some sleep and at 3:30 a.m. rushed off making sure to pack the charged batteries etc to be at Corris corner for 9:30 am the following day. It was a hard walk but a glorious morning with great light and a clear view, the first jet around the corner was a Hawk T2 and 20 minutes later 2 F15Es from Lakenheath growled down the valley, and just about 4 minutes later they did it again but just a little more spectacularly. There were more due later but with changing light it seemed a good idea to move to Cad east for a different veiwpoint, sadly the Strike Eagles stayed high this time, but 2 Tornado gave us a great wings-swept pass, a great day out!
