Police BK17 G-PSNR currently ( 19:45 ) hovering over Ards at 9000ft!

Can hear it but can't see it

Technically I suppose it isn't 'hovering' at that altitude but moving very slowly

Spotted it, flying large circles with the camera trained on something to the west. A Gazelle joined it at a similar altitude and the two moved off to the south.  Most odd.
