Ashton Court's Balloon Launch site had a busy ballooning day on Thursday the 19th. Three of Campbell's balloon vans passed me at about 6am as I walked up to Ashton Court, 3 or 4 other balloons too. Like me making the most of a gap in the bad weather.

I had actually gone up there to get a photo of a large bird of of prey by the fattest oak in Ashton Court but nothing there.

Test inflation by Campbell. Presumably bound for Australia but seen here first!

Not too different from the classic hot air balloon shape, this one just about could be classed as a special shape.

Netherlands bound special shape another test inflation by Campbell.
