Jabiru UL-450, G-BZSZ
After returning from a local flight the pilot lined up for an approach to Runway 20 (grass). He reported that the wind was from 200° at 8 to 10 kt. Just prior to touchdown, while the pilot was reducing power, the aircraft was struck by a gust of wind from the right. The pilot reported that he had insufficient time to stop the aircraft from drifting to the left. After touchdown the left wing clipped some hedges and spun the aircraft around until it came to rest. The pilot was uninjured.
