Looking at Birds on Purpose
Towards the end of July, the night sky has been quite active with nighttime sights, Jupiter has been the closest to Earth for a long time, and comet Neowise has been very visible in the nighttsky around 22:30-23:00 hrs.
Venus is also very visible, and tending to be the bright morning star in the eastern skies around sunrise.
For those who are curious, I use www.heavens-above.com, and if you set it to your location, the Whole Sky Map is brilliant for identifying whats above you.

Yes, a teatime moon!
I posted some info on the August Full Moon, which I've copied over, inc the thread link:
The next full moon for the UK will be around 16:58 on Monday 3 Aug 2020.
The full moon for August is called: "Sturgeon Moon" because of the large number of fish in the lakes where the Algonquin tribes fished.
Other names for this Full Moon include
Now you're wondering who the heck are the Algonquin tribes?
Well, Algonquian and Algonkian both refer to the Algonquin language or to the group of tribes that speak related dialects. Therefore, the Algonquian tribes (including the Delaware, the Narragansetts, the Pequot, and the Wampanoag) are so called because they all speak the Algonkin or Algonquin language.
