Sat by the lake after we stopped after 7pm and stayed there watching the sun go down as it was so mild. It was a clear night with just a little haze around the moon. Very peaceful.

Isn't that very early? I don't think they passed over our way (Gers) until mid -Dec. I used to follow them on this website:

We've had dozens of large groups ( Gaggle, flock, flange? :) ) go over here on the border of Champagne and Burgougne. Always impressive - they seem to circle here and gain hight, as more groups join.

If you're so convinced its a harbinger of the winter onslaught, we should get our pullies out too, although we're still eating outside at the mo - its glorious here.

Have I spoke too soon :shock:

We have had a few flights passing over around 22.00, 23.00 hours. I assume they are moving at night because the nights are clear and there is a moon to light their way. I thinks they are amazing and great weather forecasters.

First squadron flew over this afternoon. Winter is coming. Beautiful weather at the mo though.

Hope they pass by soon
