Them’s big birds!

Bardsey is a rare place of peace. Birdsong, the hum of bees, the moaning and sniffing and audible passing of wind by the seals mingles with the crashing of the sea. Then suddenly the RAF scream in with 50 odd Hawk aircraft.  “Luftwaffe!” exclaims our Belgian visitor, Chris. The sight may have appalled a pacifist or a more contemplative soul, but it impressed me with its precision and the display of power, and the tribute that it will be part of for the Queen’s Jubilee. “My goodness” said Chris “In  Belgium the airforce has only 3 aircraft!”
