28th Feb/1st March

Hi everyone,

I finally managed to get out on a night to Ravenscar, North Yorkshire for a night of stargazing, yahhooo. It was cloudy when we arrived but soon cleared up and the first thing we saw was a massive fireball which lit the cloud below it completely up with 3 or 4 others to follow. The wind was forecast to be 18 mph but was very still but very cold down to 0.degrees.  On the way back we saw  1 Badger, 2 Foxes, 1 Barn Owl, 1 Tawny Owl and 1 Roedeer.

Also the Ring Necked Parakeet came back for a bite of lunch Tuesday.





Anyway digressing, so heres the latest sightings for Broomhill Flash.
