23/09/2012 Blackheath

The rain started just before leaving Hackney and was steady during the c15 minute drive to Blackheath. Didn't expect much flying today given the weather forecasts leading up to the weekend.

Out on the field the Canada Geese had made their presence felt after a couple of years when they did not impact the site. I wonder what changed?

Some good free flying with standard 1.5s with three wrap/green race and extra brake in the steady easterly breeze. Some treacle flying was in evidence which I always commend as were transitional moves from free flying to called manoeuvres.

Leaving the site, once the lack of gloves and chill/damp factor set in, a dozen or so Canada Geese flew past, very low down, in formation, landing over the road to the north of the pond. Earlier we had seen curiously 'repeated' performances by a flock of starlings grouping and splitting to the west, the graphical emphasis changing from dark to 'grey' as the birds changed direction.
