A rather dreary day so no chance of a dramatic sky.
It was nice to see a couple of balloons heading home in the evening and one came right overhead which is unusual.
We used to see them frequently at weekends as they would land and take-off from Bodiam Castle down in the valley.
However, a few years ago the National Trust started to lock their car park gates in the evening and then didn't open them until 8am. This was to stop people parking there overnight but also had the effect of stopping the ballooners landing there as they like to fly early in the morning.
