I’ve had 12 hours flying my DJI Mini 2 then disaster struck… bird strike! I think it’s stuck on the side of a building and the building owners can’t see it from their windows. I could do with anyone in Portsmouth with a drone getting in touch…

I’m not so far away … but, with current legislation, is sounds like it’s not somewhere I can legally fly my MP1.
Amended topic title - possibly someone that can fly in the location will assist.
Chris (@clinkadink ) has kindly stirred me into action.
I was over Fort Cumberland earlier today but launched from Hayling, which is where I live. I have an ?Air 2 which is a bit more restricted as to where I can fly - unless we can get permission from the building owners.
Apparently that window over the balcony only opens to a limited extent. Perhaps if I create a “mirror on a stick” contraption, I might have more luck.
That area you highlighted @Steviegeek is an architectual quirk since those three shops predate the theatre, the shops were eventually acquired by the theatre and converted to office space (I believe). So there is a huge gap to fall into. I did see the drone hit the side of the build so I don’t think it’s in there.
