Martin, your pictures appear to have been taken from "the mound" at Prestwick, which I thought was closed. Would you mind letting us know the location of your "spotting spot" as I shall be visiting Prestwick very soon, and would like to get some similar photographs?

I've been going to Prestwick fairly regularly, and quite resently, and can say that the "mound" is not closed. It is almost inaccessable by vehicle, due to being well churned and rutted up by 4x4s, but you can still get to and along on foot, and still get you photographs, as I do. I'm sure that this pic was taken from there, going by the background.
Hope you enjoy when you get there.

Yip picture was taken from the mound guys. The end nearer the tower. As Richard said its hardly worth trying to get up by vehicle but you could park at the bottom and walk . Hope you enjoy your visit Peter.

Thank you for the information, but I was at Prestwick yesterday and the day before, (25 and 26 May) but the weather was dreadful, low cloud and showers all the time, so I didn't go to the mound after all.

The weather has been dreadful, but hopefully it will clear up soon and you'll get a chance down at the mound, might even have a picnic LOL

Hi Richard, I'm back home in Sweden now, so it will be months and perhaps years before my next chance! However look out for some brill pix from Manchester airport soon (taken the day before).
