I waited with these guys until I got hungry and decided to go for a wander.
I was livid with myself.
Once I had composed myself I decided to go back to gate 29 and wait, it was here I bumped in to Eddie Jennings followed by Bill and Ruth Gorton.
Eventually the birds reappeared, they seemed to have come from the golf course pines and were just loafing around in the willows and birch trees in the clearing next to gate29.
Take a look at the awesome bill, these birds were well worth the wait.
