Brand New Cygnet

Built to the original plans, not yet flown. Tiny JAP engine (with another cylinder on the other side) and 100 knot airspeed indicator! Wot, no magnetos? Right, electronic ignition. I bet that wasn't in the original plans.

Tail Feathers 3

The same day as the blue tit, these three buzzards did quite good eagle impressions over Barton. The tatty one may have been a juvenile, as he made mock attacks on the other two. The highest-soaring bird was in magnificent plumage.
