Super capture Brian - we used to watch them do a flypast over the beach at Bournemouth during my mis-spent youth. Just on that bit of sand to the left of the pier...d'you know the bit I mean??? Grin Always sat on the left never to the right but I don't know why!! Used to dive off the pier on the left too! Lou

Must have almost blown your bunnet off, Brian: you were in just the right spot at the right time to capture this phenomenal shot.
Very well done.
