Today's forecast was for classic Monksdown conditions, but since that site is currently shut we all had to look elsewhere. The smart money was on Westbury but I thought to give Swallowcliff a try. The buzzards and kites were out in force to show the air was bouyant. Fairly soon I was in a good climb with the birds and leaving the hill. Very low at Blandford, but the birds indicated the rising air above a school field that I had anticpated landing in. Super low again near Puddletown I made a last ditch pass over the corner of a field and it magically pinged me up again. The hanging clouds of the sea breeze front were over the Whitehorse ridge and I had pop through a keyhole gap to reach Weymouth. A few lazy spirals and 15 mins of admiring the view before feet touched the ground in the Westerly sea breeze. Goal and a new site record.
