Cambridge Black Swans and Spitfires - 10th September 2006

Miscellaneous scenes from Cambridge (with a few of Norwich's pigeons thrown in for good measure), including: a few beers at the Fort St. George on the River Cam; the aforementioned pigeons of Norwich; a Mark-5 Spitfire - BM597, registered as JH-C and originally part of a Polish RAF squadron, is spotted parked at Cambridge Airport (Spitfires are always an absolute joy to see, especially close-up); finally Nosher and Isobel go for a bike ride down to the banks of the River Cam out at Grantchester Meadows, and see people jumping in rivers and a black swan cruise by.
