A night shift on the fells earlier in the week as clear skies were present along with a strong moon to light up the way, natures torch! I knew there was a couple of CMEs (Colosal Mass Injection) earth bound so there was a chance of Aurora as well.
|Faint Aurora on the horizon looking from 'the Cairns'|
|Looking south towards Orion and Sirius the brightest star in the night sky|
|Back at the house after the moon dropped at 3am the stars visible multiplied|
Barn Owl calling as I arrived closer to home after a great night out!

|At the back of Tesco on the Eden...|
While I popped into the big city of Carlisle I covered my usual stretch of the Eden river where I encountered a female Kingfisher sat close in the willows. Also 3 Snipe and Lapwing on the flooded fields. Big number of 100 plus Fieldfares overhead and 20 odd Redwing. A few Goosander on the river along with Mute Swans.
