High Hopes in the French Alps

Magpie Morning with Rain Later..

We awoke to the gravelly screeches of a group of Magpies this morning, what a racket! Cloud on cloud on cloud, at varying levels and then some filled the valley. Strong winds forecast all around us, so if it was going to be flyable anywhere in the region it would be here. Late monrning the sun broke through and they went out to fly. I decided to give it a miss as the forecast suggested rain later and heavy at that. Didn’t miss much apparently, they managed a couple of flights before the weather turned in, but at least they got to fly which is better than non.
