‘copter capturing

big yellow bird

Today in Aberdour we got the priveledge of spotting a big yellow bird.

Our curiosity was first aroused when the second police car passed us. Seemed a tad unusual for such a sleepy little village!

A voice was coming from across the airwaves in an empty ambulance.

Then further down, we came across a coastguard truck, and a few folks standing watching the circles being drawn above them. The lifeboat took care to get out of the way of the ripples caused by the helicopter.

At first, I was quite convinced it was a training exercise on such a pretty day, but apparently not. It was all remarkably orderly, and all the “official people” were calm and collected.

Tho’ I’d been cheerily snapping away without any indication of the seriousness at the time, now I’m just hoping and praying the poor guy is ok.
