Sunsets, BBs at Bressingham, B17 Crash Sites and a Study of Pheasant Feathers - 11th December 2005

A roundup of some weekend miscellany: the Saturday food-gathering session and quick amble around for some more photos of Diss, whereupon Nosher discovers a strange hallowe'en mask on a stick and Peter "The Rev" Allen roaming around. There's then several shots of a sunset in various phases and from various locations on the back lanes back from Ipswich on Saturday (I'd rather do 50mph in the lanes than be stupidly limited to 50mph by the Nanny State on the A140...). There's then a few scenes from a BBs gig at Bressingham (featuring some fun technical gremlins), a bit of late-autumn colour and finally a donation from The Boy Phil - a couple of pheasants (otherwise known as Phuzzies) are offered, so there follows a study of pheasant feathers, the owners of which end up hanging in my shower cubicle (as it gets chilly with the door closed and the cats can't get to them). Pheasants, the world's dimmest bird: they're thick and feathery...
