Winter Walk

Saturday 27th December a.m.
 Some snow arrived yesterday evening & a keen frost leaving icy conditions with the temperature staying around zero all day.My first job was to clear the snow off our bird feeders then de-ice them
& top them up for the birds who will be struggling for food in these icy conditions.Through the day we had visits from Bullfinch,Greenfinch,Goldfinch,Chaffinch,Coal Tits & unusually Starlings with the unwelcome visits from Jackdaws & Grey Squirrels.
 Despite the cold it has been a bright sunny day so we set off on a walk around the surrounding countryside of the village.Not too much to report on the bird front the highlights being a Sparrowhawk & a flock of Redwings. Here are some of the snaps we took on our Winter Walk along
with a couple of garden visitors.
