    That's an amazing catch, Tony! Was it dropped back into the water or over a field or some such?

    Kind regards,

  • Something a bit different from this morning.

    Record shots of these chaps circling over my patch getting ready to group together for the flypast in Endcliffe Park Sheffield in honour of the American airmen who died there 75 years ago.

  • I was going to go Hazel but they said last night they wanted people to start getting there for 7:15 then I realised how busy it was going to be so decided against it, I was up on my patch this morning with my sister when we spotted them circling getting ready to fly to Sheffield, we had them for about 30 minutes, those in Endcliffe park just got the fly past.
    Lovely to watch it back on the Iplayer though, it was a good turn out.

    It dropped it in the shallows some distance away, Ann. I don't know whether it was able to get back to deeper water.
