Today, in honour of the NHS, a Spitfire did a fly past of our hospital, watched by a fair crowd of socially distanced folk who gathered on the green opposite.
Trouble with aeroplanes is that they are rather difficult to photograph, especially when they are whizzing by quite quickly! But I got a few decent ones, although you can't make out the NHS message that was painted on the underside of the wings.
This little bit of plane spotting followed a long two hour walk out to Coddington village. There's a medieval fishpond there, but alas it's on private land and you can't get to it, as with the other pond in the village that I'd like to look at.
Tonight I will be hunting for Comet Neowise, which I failed to spot at 3am this morning. The noctilucent clouds were amazing though.
