Merlin Helicopter

This morning [31 Aug 14] the duty watch keepers and large numbers of visitors were surprised by a large military Merlin helicopter flying very low around the coast.  After passing close to the lookout it flew along Rhossili Bay, well below several paragliders that were flying from Rhossili Down, before heading in an easterly direction along the Bury Estuary.

Later it returned but, unfortunately, it arrived so suddenly and flew past so low and close that I didn't get a photo. I didn't even get to my camera!  I'm sure several members of the public got something on their tablets and phones though.
