Paraglider above Stubbington Down
Paraglider above Stubbington Down
It was difficult to tell how far away this paraglider was. But let us assume he was above the steeper scarp slope and therefore probably in the adjacent square west.
The arable land on top of the down is definitely in this square though; not a good place for him to land. But in the whole of the time we were watching him he mead no indication of landing; the thermals kept taking him back up.
