Re: Who could have ever thought .....

It almost seems strange to see images of people enjoying themselves in what was the usual way. Two of those locations are quite relevant as my wife and I were due to go to Venice for her birthday and then Austria as part of a grand European road-trip. This was to mark our Silver Wedding last year bu...

Re: SPOTM 2021 calendar

Another great selction of subjects - thanks team!

With regards to January's comp, does the photograph have to have been entered in the 2020 comps or can it be a "first-timer" entry, if that makes sense?

Thanks
Ian

Re: red squirrels & snow bunting, mersea island

There may well be as there is/was a long-term project for a breeding program to attempt to release some among the greys. The intention I believe was to study the effects of shared habitat and also the virus that the greys carry and kills off the reds. Time will tell I guess but I'm not holding my br...

Re: red squirrels & snow bunting, mersea island

Beautiful set Andy of some lovely species, many of which I have either not seen or yet to photograph. That red squirrel in mid air and the widgeon "gear up" are fabulous. Living on the edge of Thetford Forest I only get grey squirrels running along the fence and in the trees just outside.

Re: DH89 Dominie 4R-AAI Strathallan 1975

I love a DH classic - beautiful aircraft and nicely captured in b+w.

It is - or at least was - at Wroughton when I took this rather poor slide back in 1987:

I can deal with his general lack of everything that he lacks by simply ignoring his output.

In addition his classification of key worker is ridiculous and ins...

Re: Innsbruck, Austria

Not wishing to detract from the lovely aircraft but that backdrop in the first shot is stunning. I love the alpine airfields settings like this one. Had planned Switzerland and Austria road tour but that's all on hold now. Hopefully in the next year or two it will happen, fingers crossed.

Lovely set Mick. Rougham is my "lunchtime local" - or was until lockdown. I usually seem to miss their events due to various reasons so good to see what turned out.

Re: G-ROBN livery help

Hi James, FR24 playback shows G-ROBN over Trowbridge roughly NE-SW at approx 14:35 UTC , or 15:35 BST so if this ties in with your sighting then that's your aircraft. Just noticed it flew earlier heading the other way(approx NNE) at 11:05 (12:05 local/BST). Again this may tie in. Hopefully one of th...
