It might not be full steam ahead but combines are grabbing their chances as and when the weather breaks. Here’s a round-up from our Harvest Highlights galleries
FWiSpace user Noble1 uploaded this shot of a Quadtrac STX 440 and Annaburger chaser-bin taking a load from RL Goodman and Sons’ Lexion 600 at Eastwell Park near Ashford, Kent.
The River Humber meanders by in the background as Ivor Marsden cuts Compass oilseed rape at Grove Farm, near Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Thanks to Tracy Marsden for this picture.
Sunset silhouettes – William Cyster unloads Extrovert OSR into lorries at Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm on Romney Marsh, Kent.
All lit up– Alan Shearer grabbed this eye-catching image just as the last of the light disappeared and drivers Roger Grant and Sandy Wilcox prepared for the nightshift at Smiddyhowe Farm near Inverurie, Aberdeenshire.
Firefighters – the standard issue fire extinguisher wasn’t enough to save this Lexion 580 and it now looks likely the Oliver boys will be back at school before harvest is completed at Silks Farm, Wye, Kent. Picture by Eddie Oliver.
Alternative angle– Harvest Highlights regular Simon Gruszeckyj got down low to capture R Ellis and Sons removing the header at the end if the rape near Cubbington, Warwickshire.
