8th

I didn't notice any visitors on Monday, but what looked like PA28 G-BNXU was up for a jaunt around 15:00.  Haven't seen that one in a wee while.

R44 G-ONEP dep 13:00 and didn't come back.  Seemed to be in the local area, though.

AS55 G-NETR still parked-up.

Copper-chopper EC45 G-PSNR was operating low in the area 11:30, down to around 800 ft, but I don't think it landed at EGAD.  EC35 G-PSNI came for a look on a similar profile around 19:00.

14:40 C206 G-NIME dep from somewhere near Ards ( or Ards itself? ) climbing over me heading east.  Was low past the zone yesterday but I hadn't noticed it landing.
