    Time of year can be a problem though - it was 1C on Saturday night, beautiful view but flipping cold.

    I love this:

    The Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau released images of the rectangular-shaped metal object in a news release last week.

    It said authorities would determine if "they need to investigate further".

    "It is illegal to install structures or art without authorisation on federally managed public lands, no matter what planet you're from," the department said

    "Spotted whilst counting sheep." Which obviously caused them to fall asleep and miss the aliens making a quick getaway in their flying saucer.

    I've dabbled in falconry a few times over the years, but nothing on this scale. Fair play to the lady - the sheer size of this sea eagle would probably overwhelm me...

    It certainly is - has a wingspan of seven feet. The largest I've handled is an eagle owl, with a wingspan of five and a half feet, and - more importantly for me - a far smaller beak.
