Best Strike Force on Show

The Royal Navy U23 rugby team were the focus of my attention yesterday and they had an impressive strike force in their back three of captain Matt Horton @ fullback and wingers Eldon Meyer and Ben Clarke.

However I managed to grab a couple of shots from the road on my way to the game of the many Red Kites that hunt between High Wycombe and Aylesbury.

Even though it was quite a windy day they maintained their majestic grace in the air.

They were probably the best strike force on show during the day.

Morning Sun

Having endured a couple of very wet days it was great to have some clear skies and early morning sun.  I was down by the River Hamble to take a couple of shots of the Navy Referees Charity Ride for the RBL and RNRMC.  Became slightly side tracked by this Little Egret also enjoying the Sunday morning rays.
