Two Merlin engines

A few years back it was the 75th anniversary of the first Spitfire flight and approx 12 aircraft did a fly past over Southampton. Being a resident of Woolston, the suburb in which the Supermarine factory was sited I was really looking forward to the event - as were many locals.
Well, what a let down; they flew up the west side of Southampton Water and over the far side of the city and were barely audible and nothing but dots on the horizon. There were a few angry faces on the shore that day.
Current status report:
Back on two wheels in deepest Pastyland and loving every minute. Mission: to enjoy big, bad hills again.

I was awoken the other morning by a parliament of rooks enacting question time on a tree outside my bedroom window.
Not perhaps my favourite sound, but better than traffic noise.
The garden is full of ring-necked doves, and occasionally we hear a green woodpecker.

Ticking of the clocks is nice, but other than the clocks, silence please.
