Historic Racing Cars

The plastic Lotus Europa is hustled by Japanese iron in the form of the Datsun 240Z. The red car is not a Triumph TR2 or 3a, but Turner Mk 2.

More F3 racers

The red and blue cars are chevrons (and the head of a third driver can be seen though the windscreen of the red car). The F3 cars were taken at 1/80th and 1/160th sec. respectively for the panning. The yellow one looks like a tiny version of the Auto Union, those 16-cylinder monsters raced by Germany in the late Thirties.

Four images from Snetterton yesterday. The 500cc F3 cars were great - single cylinder bike engines!

Identifying Cuckoos

Apart from the head, cuckoos look remarkably like a bird of prey, usually the sparrowhawk, but in this case a kestrel.

Merlin Telescope

We were up the drift looking for the barn owl. It flew over a hedge two fields away, while the evening light lit the radio telescope ten fields away.

This female marsh harrier never had the time to get a bead on any little lapwings once the parent started harrying her.

Back in the Pages

Midge was not well for a couple of days, and needed a bath after every nappy change. This did not dismay her.
