I was hanging out some washing early on this quiet Sunday morning, when I heard a strange noise in the sky!! I looked around, but could see nothing, and it certainly was not a bird! The noise continued and suddenly, above the local farm buildings, appeared a powered hang glider, followed by another one and yet another! I think there were 5 I saw in all. They circled around our area for a while, then headed off, back to wherever they came from!
Normal service will be resumed ASAP; we are frantically painting 3 new rooms upstairs in the barn; the new timber floor finish will be laid next week - post on this will follow.
