Snowy Scenes

As expected, the stormy winds have decreased and the snow showers have arrived. 

Was pretty chilly overnight and not much warmer today. Snow is the big enemy of the birds and means little access and lean pickings.

The Pied wagtail that often feeds on the garden pond had an easier time, being able to walk onto the ice and pick up the dried Mealworm that I put out for it.

The river birds got their share too, with no fear of ice on fast flowing water, the wind chill from the north still numbs my fingers though !  Short movie clip below after feeding time.
