That is it from me and do have a fantastic Friday.   

The birds, this morning they are in a flap.  The sea-gulls have been making a fuss about something and I can’t quite make out what they are saying.  But, I did get two urgent text messages from the male Avian chief.  The first was just after 3 am and the second was just after 6 am, it was about the noise of our big birds in the sky. That is planes flying overhead. 

A quick investigation and it appears that a freight plane flew over Dalgety Bay very early-morning below the 7,000 ft (2.13 km) limit.  Then a passenger plane just after 6 a.m, and again below the 7,000 ft (2.13 km) limit.   

When I told the chief this he could not understand, he said it was quite clear, the World Health Organisation guidelines are no flights are allowed between 11 pm and 6 a.m over large populated areas unless they flew high to reduce the noise – ideally avoiding such areas.  The CAA also recommend that any flight should be above the 7,000 ft (2.13 km) limit.   I agreed with the chief.  Sadly,  I could not explain why the planes flew so low and at unsocial hours.  All I could do was apologise on behalf of the human race.
