I have just been looking through to some older photos and noticed something interesting in the bottom left hand corner of this storm cloud next to the tree.
Could it be a funnel cloud starting?

Hey, no thats not a funnel cloud, seems to be just some scud.
It would be easier to get a definite answer if there was a video, but i'm going with scud.

Thanks guys.
The storm wasn't severe and the "funnel" wasn't that great but I thought I would ask anyway as its probably the closest thing to a funnel I have seen.
Thanks again
Mark
