Arrow Bing Maps UI revision seen Regards "Birdseye" view mode

Not been on Bing Maps for several months and somewhere in that time, the UI links have been updated

The Big one is when Clicking on the Icon to select Birdseye This are only 4 choices here instead of 5 = Road,Aerial, StreetSide (Cities and some Towns),And Ordnance Survey (UK only)

FYI. The Birdseye Feature has been moved to the Right Click advanced menu in the Map page Tip :Zoom in using the Aerial View mode first then Select Birdseye otherwise link might not be "Active"

First observations. They have cut back a lot on this revision Some places in towns have coverage while others have no access Used to be able to Show my Location (Using Birdseye) But is Aerial View only on this Update Still OK on Google Maps in 3D so Mix and Matching is the best method.
Another thing the Imagery still looks dated in places (guess about 5 or so years)
