Pine martens, red squirrels, and aurora borealis

The Northern Lights were on display across British skies last night but I didn’t see them. I looked out many times before bed, I woke at 3am to have another look, and then again at 5:30am but there was nothing. Only clouds ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Here’s what I might have seen:

I have never seen the Northern Lights. Nor have I seen a redย squirrel or a pine marten despite my many attempts to catch a glimpse of one of these things. What’s life all about if not to tick these experiences off our list? I can’t even say I’ve swum in the North Sea in winter since, although I did swim in a chilly 6ยฐC in the North Sea on Sunday, it’s technically not winter anymore! This means I’m going to have to do it again.

Maybe one day I’ll look out the window to see a pine marten having sex with a red squirrel under the aurora borealis. Imagine that! Did anyone else see theย show last night?
