We live around this area and have noticed over the past two weeks two gliders continually circling above head at a relatively low height.
Now, I realise that this is what gliders do in general (circling on thermals and all that) and that the zoo is in a small depression, not to mention Sankt Margarethen hill, which could lead to good thermals, however, I and the Mrs are mildly surprised (not to mention the children, although their excitement is for different reasons) to see gliders flying over such a heavily populated area.
We've also lived in this area for 5 years and never noticed them before, unless, of course, a new aerodrome has opened up.
Anybody got any clue as to what they might be doing if not just hanging on the breeze?
Never let right or wrong get in the way of a good opinion
