From the top: 1985 Rover SDI 3500cc, BMW CSL 3-litre, Ford Escort RS 1800. Last three are of the 1953 Cooper-Bristol, with two litre six-cylinder OHC engine and the scars of many battles.

The Historic Racing series for chaps called Henry and Nigel. The 1927 2-litre Bugatti of Martin Halusa cuts up the 1930 3-litre Hotchkiss AM80 of Steve Smith and apologises graciously. Spectators crowd the hill in front of the Craner Curves and experts cast a critical eye at the racing. The green single-seater is an Ausper T3 of 1098cc.

We went to the eventing at Horseheath, taking Meredith at the last moment. She found lots of dogs and horses to talk to and met another dog called Amber and a little girl also called Amber. Then we collected a van from Alley Cat and I drove it to Paul's house with Meredith in the cab - she loved it!

Geoff showed us round the Stanley House Stud to see the new foals. We met Tommy the Teaser (the white stallion) whose job it is to let the stable staff know when the mares are in season, but whose fate it is never to mate with them. The bottom pic is also of a stallion recovering from being kicked in the head.

We went to RSPB Fowlmere today and there was little but geese, so I'm putting up some other waterfowl. Close crops seem to work better than a wider view; we lose the big spray but the background is more uniform. Top two are of an unknown rider, the rest are Lucy Gadsby. (Top three pix with 600mm, others with 400mm.)
