High Flying Bird - Jefferson Airplane

While out in the field things have become somewhat subdued,
the result of the usual mid-Summer Doldrums, the
Moth Traps continue to return Insects of some interest such as
Firsts for the Year
 CANARY-SHOULDERED THORN
 YELLOW-TAIL
DARK UMBER
 and just for the hell of it as being such a fine specimen
(similar to its captor)

 BUFF-TIP
 SCARCE FOOTMAN
 note the 'rolled' wings, and

GREY ARCHES
 Juvenile

 PIED WAGTAIL
 are now appearing in good numbers,

probably indicative of yet another successful breeding season,
but still mostly under the watchful eyes of the parent birds.
Followed in fairly quick succession by 2 bits of
Very Good News both from the Heath.
 While they have still been in residence
 DARTFORD WARBLER
have been extremely elusive over the Spring
 but during the week we were able to capture on film this juvenile
proving breeding as they have historically here.
 Additionally to that, and only the second of this family group
to ever have been found across our
Recording Area
PYRAMIDAL ORCHID
Also there and now popping up all over the place a 
 CATERPILLAR TENT
which we are told can,on occasion, cover areas of several feet.
Alternatively there has been no sign thus far of
video
STOCK DOVE
doing the business although there is no shortage of birds.
Finally and a little belated (must try and get out of the 'cutting room' more often) as promised
here are the images of the Aircraft we presumed were entertaining the crowds at this years
Goodwood Festival of Speed.
  DASSAULT FALCON 2000
 DASSAULT FALCON 900EX
(Thanks Roy)

 We have no idea which was which,
 we leave the keen-eye to that of our audience,
 but images of c2

  1. Hi Paul, the First Falcon is a Falcon 2000 (M-DUBBS)
    The second one is a Falcon 900EX (MiAGIK).
    You could probably pick up a Pre-owned one for a bout £5 Mil, but the maintenance costs may be a bit more than your Strange Rover. :)

  2. Hello Roy and good to hear from you in a while. Thanks for ID's and on the strength of what you tell me might as well get the 'pair' and to hell with the maintenance. Best Wishes.
