What's flying over your house? Thread #2

The Chipmunk that recently did some aerobatics over a nearby field came back for another go on Friday. It was only there for five minutes before rain put paid to that.

Been in Liverpool the last couple of weeks and noticed several C-130 pairs flying quite low over the Mersey

Not exactly over my house, but over where I was working at Shobdon on Friday:

Not great pictures, just using the snappy, in low light, from a distance!

Went for a nice walk around the nearest nature reserve yesterday and saw plenty of siskins, goldfinches and lesser redpolls. We had some good views of a couple of stonechats but best of all, a pair of little owls in the nearby quarry.

 As we were watching the little owls, a de Havilland Leopard Moth flew overhead.

Two Alphajets in trail yesterday, haven't seen more than a singleton for quite a while. They must have reached that stage in the syllabus.

RAF Hercules very low over Adderbury this afternoon.

 

So low I saw him appear from behind a copse, and almost made me swerve off the road.

For the last few days now there have been multiple little red jets flying over, often dangerously close to each other. They are sometimes making trails of different coloured smoke that surely cant be good for the atmosphere or anything breathing it in - could be contrails? Hmmm?

 

Anyway, it all looks frightfully dangerous to me and is costing much of my time sitting in the back yard watching them cavort about in the sunshine. They should be banned!!
