The Pilot of G-BIZV was taxiing his tail-wheeled aircraft in the ramp/hangar area following a short local flight.

As the aircraft was about to pass behind an unoccupied parked X-AIR microlight (EI-DGG), a sudden gust of wind from the right swung G-BIZV into wind and its propeller struck the trailing edge of the microlights starboard aileron. There were no injuries.
