    An aerodrome site Ken. but one where the spare ground has been leased to a farmer to get a crop or maybe make hay.

    I am perplexed by all the black ground visible. Is this ground which has been tilled over as a fire break perhaps, or sprayed out.

    But all this ‘stuff’ is affecting the observations by the thermometer.

    So I agree it is another fail.
