Their wings are double hinged unlike any other bird I have come across. Our group was thankfully small, but reduced to just Angela and I for the next stage...our guide took us to see the rather odd 'Disappearing Gun'. This emplacement designed by the Brits of course, was built in the 1880's to counter the threat of ...
