Sunday 20th January 2013
So the snow eventually came, I know it's not what everyone wanted but at least my kids were happy!
Most of the day was spend building snowmen, snowballing and sledging. The advantage of the sledging was that the main slope lies to the south of St Margaret's churchyard, and yes you've guessed it, I occasionally glanced across the treetops for the Hawfinches. Again I was lucky and saw one bird on five separate occasions (in between sledging runs) - at the risk of boring you all I've included a couple more snaps below:
The only other bird of note was a Robin constantly hoping on and off the sledging slope.
Back at home, my garden was visited 3x Yellowhammers, only the second time in 6 years I've had them actually in the garden. There were also increased numbers of Blackbirds and masses of Collared Doves.
