Tonight we are supposedly seeing a very rare moon as it passes low in the sky. I doubt very much that Southern England is the best place to see anything and to be honest the moon looks very much as it usually does. It is low (well I photographed soon after moon rise so it would be low), but because of this it does pick up a good reddish-orange glow from the atmosphere. Both these shots will expand quite a bit if you click on them.
As for the day, the mini heatwave is continuing. There are swifts overhead and they always present a nice challenge in rapid contortionism as you follow them through the lens on their fast and erratic flight. A couple of shots from yesterday.
And one from today.
The final shot is a cute one of two sleepy herring gull chicks settling down for a nap.
