Geese are on the move ,
This time of year though I reckon some hang around with the abundance of freshly cut corn nearby. Farmers are cutting stocks with corn at 4 inches and running thru a shredder and bagging. This is left to ferment and used as feed for cows later in the year
High temperatures, 50 deg F yesterday, really. Clear skies at night brings frost and temperatures under 40 Degrees
I had the winch set up and had 1/2 dozen launches with the Simitri, 9 minutes was the max though, lift equaled sink sometimes!
Drove everything home , thought there may be rain
At some point just after a Launch a big hawk went by , headed east towards the hill, perhaps fo ft out and 50 ft up from where I was standing. Didn’t get a good chance to look but minutes latter a gaggle of blue jays could be heard squacking up there. Fair warning
Well, some time later no rain so I ran the hi start out and sent the Mirage up a number of times, 2 minutes , 4 minutes, later on 7 minutes. That’s it ? Well , no air moving, grey skies, I could have just looked out the window I suppose?
