Stormy nights

From the night before last: A killer sunset greeted us over the Rocket Pole Field as we descended the slope down to the Brigg, followed by another successful catch of six Stormies (including this bird) - it's going very well this year, with a tally of 26 over four attempts. Proceedings were rounded off by an unexpected and incredible light show out over the sea (see very poor and unrepresentative hand-held kit lens photo below) - the multi-coloured phenomena of noctilucent clouds. We got lucky, with a bright and kaliedoscopic performance to rival any aurora, shifting in shape and colour as we watched from the shore.
