Kite aerial photo: Monthly survey in progress on the clay site in Cambridgeshire.
I like this photo. It shows the different elements of the project quite nicely. Please see the notes on the photo.

    I like this photo too ;o)
    Do you have one of the Gloucestershire site?

    no, sadly there was no wind on one test site and on the other I had to take the kite down because I was flying too close to the outdoor pigs- apparently they get spooked by the kite.

    Added to my experience of livestock and KAP- sheep and cows don't seem bothered, horses get mesmerised....

    Funky :). Did you find anything?

  4. Archaeobobalist 41 months ago | reply

    Not really so much a matter of finding something as much as repeating the survey over the same feature every month to see how the response changes

    Oh good, rigor! Good to see more people spending effort to do something statistically significant :). Keep up the good work!
