Mon 23rd Feb, Nothing to report and had T'internet probs Today went up dunmail again only to find it FOG bound!!! On the way windermere and ambleside had it and i thought like previous times by the time i get to duni it would not be to bad...Wrong!!! it filled the pass then cleared but came back and stayed. The bonus was i found a new ledge thirlmere end,got there at 10 gave it till 1300 although ok at road level no good for the fly boys hope to try again on friday Thirlmere.
Got no fog! got no traffic! my unbeaten record in tatters!!! got there at 10am was up on ledge close to Thirlmere end for 1030 and gave it till 1545 before heading back down. Weather was overall ok but nothing came through! Gonna try the M6 mast Tebay on tuesday,and hope the next time up Duni is rewarding Thirlmere today
Yesterday was a wash out spent a little bit of time around windermere but nothing,at the moment other than civil no activity around ulverston,my brother who has been staying with me is on the way to warton right now ill get him to post if he gets anything.
Seems that way chris! Yesterday at duni got there 1030 first up was AAC Lynx from Thirlmere to Grasmere,around oneish the first of 3 Tucano's,quickly followed by a 2sqn Tonka which i screwed up again! Left at 1545 thinking that was it when the 3rd tucano came! 1620 driving through Ambleside a Hawk went over typical!!! Sunny at times but very cold could hardly hold the camera so did not get any decent shots well thats my excuse
Any sign of those big black bags on Dunmail yet.I was out taking landscape stuff on Wednesday and could here quite a bit of heli activity without actually seing anything.I was wondering if they were stone lifting again. On a side note there was a 13 SQDN Tonka through Thirlmere at 0940 and later saw an Hawk at 1500 hrs over Derwent Water.In the area all day and saw bugger all else.
At duni for more training! herc and Tiff,got the 1st tiff pass but as couldnt stay long missed 2 more by same aircraft from 29 sqn,cam in bag syndrome,some jet activity back in ulverston so im told,will be back at duni on fri going to try west side.
