We had more snow overnight, and although it stopped during the morning, the forecast was for snow from about lunchtime.
Instead of steps in the garden, it looks like we have a very steep slope heading up to the grass!
More finches and blackbirds have been flocking to the nearby feeders again – there was some food scattered on the ground, plus the seeds that have been knocked out of the feeders by the pigeons.
“Blackbirds don’t visit bird tables or seed feeders”…. unless it’s very, very, very cold (-1C today, but it’s meant to feel like -7C with the windchill).
I’m not sure how much seed he managed to get out, but at least one Blackbird spotted the walnut cake that was in the garden and decided that made a tastier (and easier) meal.
The snow might have been unexpected for the wildlife, but it did make some unusual patterns on the rooftops as it was blown about in the high winds.
