Vistors to RNAS Culdrose

After a somewhat quiet period aircraft visitor wise at RNAS Culdrose, it was good to see a couple of visitors. An MH 60S Knighthawk helicopter from the United States Navy made a short stop. This was followed around the same time by an A400M of 70 Squadron RAF carrying out some practice approaches. A resident 736 squadron hawk also put in an appearance.

Mach Loop Visit March 2017

Another visit to the low flying training area in Wales. As usual it is pot luck with the weather and amount of aircraft. A lack of aircraft and poor weather restricted opportunities. So I had to grab what I could when I had the chance. Stunning views are the reward for the climb and it was even better when it snowed. Now onto some images:

Bonapartes Gull

Another visit to Helston boating lake and the visiting Bonapartes Gull was still there. So I managed to grab some varied images of it today, some in good light some bad. Still a bit of variety.

Stithians Southern Cut Off



As photography goes it was a poor day weather wise, but had a couple of things I wanted to try out, so spent a couple of hours in the hide at the Southern cut off. Nothing spectacular just the local residents. So here are some images, oh and a short video.
