Coldest Winter

My earlier gut feeling about this going to be a bad winter seems to have come to fruition. Must be the coldest winter for at least the past 10 years. The relentless Siberian wind is bone chilling if outdoors for any length of time.

Even with the pond heater, I have to break the ice off the pond every morning to allow Disco and Limpy access.

Ground is frozen solid and Disco is desperate for grass roots and soil, so have to pour hot water on small area to allow her to get at it.

Meanwhile the Pied Wagtail is glad of the dried mealworm sprinkled on the pond every day. This continuing severe weather will be fatal to a lot of birds, so be sure to give them food and water !
