Not really a 'brace yourself!' moment, but a close shave nonetheless!

We're not going to be able to spot it really, so it's not an exciting thing to mark on your diary, but I suppose it's worth noting (especially if you're hope for a good night's sleep tonight!) is that this kind of thing happens, quite close by, very regularly - it's just that we know this fella is coming by! :D
