snow covered trees at the back of the houseSo we had the covering, we've had the icy walks, we had some more snow and then came the thaw; the pavements were all slushy and now it's almost gone. Here are a few pictures of our snow fun, and then some photos from our walk today so you can see what we discovered.
The birds are around in large numbers today as they can get at the ground again. Including numerous Fieldfares that are being mentioned on news and nature programmes lately. Just a couple of minutes from our home is a woodland area where there must have been about 40 or 50 Fieldfares amongst other birds. The birdsong was delightful to hear.
Here's a picture that I carefully lined up and focused on the Fieldfare - can you see him in the centre?
No? No, because he flew off just as I took the photo! I got a couple more but never quite got the focus, here's one of them anyway.
And as the snow has cleared, there are signs of Spring. We were delighted to see these daffodils shooting from the ground; and the Pieris nodding it's beautiful white flowers. Is Spring just around the corner?
