I did stay up for the total lunar eclipse last night, hoping that in the end the clouds would part an allow me a glimpse of the moon turning that potent crimson colour - everyone else says "blood red" and I refuse to succumb to that cliche! - as it passes through the shadow of mother earth.
Of course the clouds never did part, so all I got for my troubles was very cold, very tired, and thus stressed for the visit of my landlord and a valuer to my flat. On a bright clear day good for photography, I then had to stay home waiting for a plumber to show up to fix my kitchen tap.
The only wildlife I saw all day were these two.
