11th June 2018. I arose at about 4 am BST to let the cat in and to my amazement noticed a hedgehog in my small garden. It had been many years since seeing one! It also answered the question posed yesterday by the small green-black animal turd in the large flowerpot! By now I was too awake to return to bed so, picking up my 10x50 monocular c/w pistol-grip, I walked up to Foredown Hill. As the partly cloud-covered sky was being painted with the sunrise colours, at about 0445 - 0455 BST, I noticed a Herring Gull hanging motionless for ages on the stiff breeze as if it was watching and waiting for the sunrise...and finally I came across my primary target, the two-days-to new Crescent Moon. Certainly a rich crepuscular experience to treasure! regards maf

A nice observation Mike. We've had a phenomenally warm Spring with lots of clear nights in the North West. The snag is that by the time it's dark, Yours Truly is well asleep.
