Unusual visitor for Helston, a Glossy Ibis (Plegadis falcinellus) near Helston boating lake. A very approachable bird, unfazed by dog walkers etc. Very busy continually feeding most of the time. A bit more sunlight would of been good for photography but think I got some images during the suns brief appearances.

My first visit to RAF Coninsby and is was rather a good day. Very productive with lots of Typhoon movements, power take off and missed approaches. So here are some images from a great day out, another base to visit again in the future.

With the continued reduction in UK low level flying, I decided rather than climb a mountain I would pay a visit to Manchester airport. Despite an early start I arrived a little later than intended. Luckily the majority of aircraft movements had not commenced yet due to fog. As a result there was plenty to photograph when procedings commenced. Had a good position for some taxy/movement shots but could off done with a different spot for the actual ( v1 rotate) take-offs. On the whole it was very productive day and I will be visiting again.
