Yes we hit a common buzzard at about 400'agl, returning to Shoreham.
No time to avoid , it just whacked throught he chin window and hit me on the shins. It was like being kicked by Roy Keane!
Lots of rushing air and feathers, pushed a PAN call out to Shoreham and landed in the field below us. (Probably where the buzzard's prey had been!).
We had our visors down of course but we're considering wearing shin pads as well now.
Sussex ambulance "spokeswoman" was a bit melodramatic though. Shame she didn't speak to me before posting that stuff.
