Duxford Aviation Society's newest airliner acquisition arrived at 10 a.m. today. The Trislander is a three-engined version of the Britten-Norman Islander twin, built on the Isle of Wight. They had fixed undercarriages and operated on short hops between islands around Britain, including the Channel Islands, where this one was based.

In Peter's Midget to the Ace Cafe, London, with three other Spridgets. Gary turned up with Neil's old Sprite, ready for a trip to Le Mans. The Lancia is an Aurelia B20, apparently a very good car, but the Vauxhall 'Victor' FB is actually a VX 4/90 from 1968 or thereabouts.

Not much variety in birdlife today, but this male Marsh Harrier appeared to have a broken or twisted right leg, which he held in place during flight with the other leg. I missed the food transfer - it happens so quickly, but looks like a coot or moorhen being carried.
