Nice one Al! Would any of these be vissable from the outside?

To answer my own question, yes they are! Tonight nine could be seen. One Lynx AH7 was missing compared to the above log.

Edit; after rechecking my photo's taken from both vantage points, all 10 could be seen. XZ679 being the first AH7 in the line. HMA8 with codes 366 and 474, along with another (likely 454) are standig seperately now.

Several tracks on the east end lead up to the fence. You need steps though to overlook the solar panels and hedges.
