Came across this windsock at Land's End-St Just in Cornwall on Monday. There are only a few rocks between here and New Foundland in Canada.

If that's a recent photograph, then it looks like the windsock was finally moved away from the middle part of the apron, creating more space to manouvre and park aircraft.

This photo was taken August 2010.:
