Yes on one section of the A47 as I headed toward Thorney the trailer went very light but a simple easing of the throttle, quick twitch of the wheel and a bleedin loud expletive had the trailer feel "heavy" again....scary stuff and the nod and wink from a overtaking Police BMW X3 I knew I had a close call, it got worse as my load got lighter. The worse problem came from trees on one newly built section of road the young ash trees need not worry about Ash Diebach, they'll need replanting, the ones that stayed upright were falling over as I drove past, one whacking the windscreen causing a big crack...nice. Branches were also falling down like it was raining, it really was nightmare and I was glad to get back to the yard in one piece....shame the lorry didn't but I got off lightly.

I had the greyhound with me so didn't linger on the actual reserve for to long and only went to the screen hide were just visible on Hawthorne Island was a Great White Egret, so despite no Long Tail Ducks there was plenty to tempt me up there, weather permitting, at the weekend.
