Balloon, Swifts, Haddock

Sitting outside Zizzi's in the evening, I see a yellow, hot-air balloon drift slowly above the High Street and dissappear over the rooftops in the direction of The Common.

Later, a bunch of swifts chasing and screaming almost as high as the balloon, come into view for a few seconds, directly overhead in the strip of sky between the buildings.

I read in the New Scientist about a new variety of jelly fish which was discovered by a man called called Stephen Haddock, who is a researcher at the Monterey Aquarium Research Institute.
