Last night the moon rise at about 17:00 was spectacular. A so called “super moon” – when the moon is at its closest to us – and so looks much larger. A huge, orangey-red ball, more like the setting sun, and later noticeably much brighter than a normal full moon. A light cloud at about 23:00 made its brightness into a diffuse light that made everything visible. I should have gone out looking for barn owls!

Not a super moon - but a lovely photo of one of the Christmasy robins that are on the shore at the moment
