It looked as if there had been heavy equipment in use after last weekend’s event but the site was mostly litter free.

Low grey clouds and a westerly air movement were the precursor for eventual fine drizzle.  I was pre-occupied with setting up and flying the JMH Sanjo Rokkaku kite from 1991 with a lightweight frame.  The very light breeze was almost enough to get it airborne on 200ft/60m of spectra line with a four strand bungee at the line anchor point.  Zens were flown on standard team lines today!

Eventually the breeze did pick up from the north to about 6mph and while the drizzle increased the Rokkaku had a settled flight.  I was even able to walk away and get the camera, catching a few minutes video of the flight!
