Star Gazing and Bird Watching.

Last night we braved the cold and spent some time "Star Gazing". A friend brought his new smart telescope and set it up on the cottages car park.
We had some splendid viewings of Jupiter and its moons, Pleiades (The Seven Sisters) and The Constellation of Orion. We always knew that we were lucky to live in a "dark sky" area and it was a real treat to view them in more detail.
While we were doing this the recently arrived oyster catchers were very vocal.
Robert saw lots of snipe while out field working this morning.
