Initially the path goes through a field which was full of sheep and lambs. The wee lambs were bouncing around as they are inclined to do except for one which was was lying motionless on its side. I could see its eyes were open so it wasn’t dead and I debated whether to seek the farmer and alert him to his wee lamb in distress or not. A closer look was required. After all I had insulation tape in my rucksack (various colours including white) and some superglue. I can fix most things with that although livestock would be a first!
As I got nearer the poor wee critter its glazed eyes suddenly focused on me and it sprang to its feet and with a loud baaa for its mum headed away across the field. It stopped for a moment, farted, unloaded some ballast, and headed off once more. That was easy! I am considering a new career as an animal fixer! Glad I didn’t drag the farmer away from his warm kitchen though!

I spent a bit of time tweaking the aileron differential but also spent a bit of time sitting drinking iffy tea from my flask and enjoying the summer weather. A few degrees warmer would be good!
