Snowy Garden

I've been out this morning to clear a patch to feed the birds and now there are loads having a wonderful time.

Have about 6" of snow here but made up a dish of food to put by the back door for the birds. Haven't seen many yet - 1 wagtail, 1 blackbird and 1 robin.

Snowy Garden

only 2 inches of snow here at the moment and it has just stopped snowing. Blackbirds are topping the list of birds in the garden (hedges) with a fair number of robbins and a variety of finches and similar small birds. It looks as though only the chickens are not happy in this weather :0(

Does look very pretty though:0)

Not much snow yet

...here in Brittany, although it has just started again. Just made some mash from vegetable peelings and pasta for the chickens and the robins are helping themselves to it and also to the Basse Cour thrown out for the chooks this morning.... Blackbirds are tucking into the Pyracantha berries so all look satisified for the moment. Funnily enough though the birds are seemingly ignoring the fat balls at the moment.

Keep warm and safe everyone.

Snow, real snow on the South coast.

Defrosted the ground bird feeder at 6 30am. by 7 covered again. Now given up !

Covered bird table is awash with birds even the ground feeders are up there. About to put out the 4th. feed - it's disappearing at an alarming rate.

So funny though watching them all vie for position.

Heavy overnight snow

No cars can get into or out of the village. Lots of meat etc for the birds. Hens won't leave their house, so we put food and water for them inside it. Love the silence of snow.

Snow joke

Someone sent me a photo of a car in our next village that had skidded off road and managed to knock over and drive over a lampost!
I feel guilty liking the snow as I know it's a missery for some, our birds in our garden are looking cold!
Nice way of describing the snow Gerry!

Brrrrrrr!

Cor Gerry, I presume your cottage doesn't have double glazing then?!
I've just been out for a brisk walk to fetch milk and bread, the local co-op I think were waiting for a delivery cos the shelves were almsot empty!

A Worm of Robins !!!

Yes I was surprised too, but there are so many of them in our garden just now, even though it is snowing really thickly, I thought I would look up the collective noun.
They obviously know what it is going to be like over the next couple of days and there are hundreds of birds eating the food we have thrown down for the chickens. All are welcome though I hate to think of the poor little things not being able to find anything to eat.

Midnight Feast

...Well almost. All sorts of different birds were out in the garden eating until it was vitually dark. The blackbirds particularly like the sultanas and raisins I put down for them.

snow + double glazing

No, Eleanor, no dg, listed building nonsense. Snowing here now, on top of the other lot. Miss the old Aga from previous houses and am using any excuse to put the oven on. Pizza today. Keep warm.

Snowy Garden

Here in Central Finland midday temp -18 Celsius. About 18" of snow cover, which will probably lie till early April. Feeder in constant use. Mainly sparrows and great tits. Magpies, jackdaws, and pheasants also visit. One solitary hooded crow who hasn't migrated South with the others. We also get brown hares and squirrels when it gets a bit milder.
