I observed the display from about 00.05 until 00.45GMT by which time it began to fade and was soon drowned out by moonlight. I do keep an eye out on any good clear night to see what's happening in the northern skies, so we may see more of these spring aurorae! James.

Great capture James, lovely photos.
