Arundel, Windsor & Duxford

June 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I've been busy over the past few weeks enjoying the good weather and events taking place, including Arundel Castle, Queens Diamond Jubilee Parade/flypast at Windsor and the Duxford Jubilee Airshow

Queens Diamond Jubilee: Went to Windsor Castle to watch the special flypast of around 80 military aircraft from all 3 services and the 2,500 troops marching past to go to see the Queen. Weather wasn't great and Windsor was heaving, just so many people ! Walked around the Great Park rather than get in the queue to get out of the car park and lucky I did as I caught shots of a Kestrel with its freshly caught peru (a vole I think), stunning photos I think.

Arundel Castle: Gorgeous sunny day so tried out the new wide angle lens in the castle. Fascinating place to visit, well worth the trek up the steps to see the Keep. Went to the Wetlands Centre just down the road. Don't have permission to sell these photos so will just put them up on my Flickr account (www.flickr.com/traumahawk). This is a great place to visit, the footpaths are very good, especially through the reed beds. Lots of different birds to see here, some I've never even heard off !

Duxford Jubilee Airshow: Wasn't sure about going to the show but the sun was shining so i thought I would have a day out. Another hot and blue sky day, the Eurofighter and F16 were great. I'm very happy with my shots, though I've got 4,700 to now edit !!!
