DVOA Fair Hill Strawbridge Fields - Green
Pretty clean except for 4 and 13, not super fast and struggled a little with climb. The worst was sometimes trying to find a way through the briars or out into the fields. But the day was beautiful, weather perfect. For a long time approaching 7 I could hear a noise that sounded like it was coming from the next field. I wasn't sure if it was birds or something else, but then as I started climbing up toward 8 a large murmuration of birds indeed came across the sky. There were so many that the woods became dark, and they all landed in the trees closer to 7.
