As I type this, snow is falling once again...Much as I like the serene picture it paints, it has caused a few disruptions we could have done without. I won't bore you with the details, but with plans we've made for early next week, I'd really like to see it gone soon.
During the cold snap I've been making sure the little feathered visitors have been kept supplied with breakfast! At the moment they are getting through a whole container of seed each day.
Evidence of the frenzied mealtime!
We've been rewarded with a great many sightings of blue tits, great tits, chaffinches, green finches, robins, blackbirds; not to mention the magpies, jackdaws, collared doves and wood pigeons. The blackbirds prefer to eat from the ground, so they've been treated to seeds and left-over pasty trims from last night's home made pie!
With me safely back inside out of sight, within a moment the birds were back on the feeder enjoying the offerings.
I'm hopeful of getting to work tomorrow, as I've hardly earned a bean this month! - But, if we have more snowfalls over night, I just can't make the half hour trip in my little car.
