First real frost of this Autumn, almost clear sky so the only things to show any colour at Sunrise this morning were the contrails of commercial aircraft:
Recently I have been watching a series of TV programmes about UFO sightings which reminded me of my only experience of something I couldn't explain. Many years ago while driving home along the back roads at night during a thunderstorm I saw an orange coloured ball some distance ahead hovering maybe 50 feet above the ground. It seemed to stay in the same place for a while and then quickly rose straight up and eventually vanished. I've always assumed it was some phenomenon connected with the electrical storm. Maybe an electrically charged ball of plasma. Reports of these being spotted have occasionally been mentioned. Who knows, but I can imagine some would have put it down to a sighting of an alien craft.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
