The snow has materialised in some parts of the country, but as yet we've seen none in the village. However, grey skies have prevailed so photography has taken a back seat.
I have found the first nest of the year, a Blackbirds. Sitting on eggs too. I thought that it was early but a check of my books showed it isnt. I hope the weather improves before the eggs hatch. I'm surprised there is enough food around.
Right, photos, what have I got to show you? Not a great deal unfortunately. A couple of trips to the pit at Christleton have produced the usual suspects. Not very thrilling I know but here they are.
I have to confess that the middle pic was taken by my brother, Alan, using my kit. I processed it along with mine hence the water mark.
There are a shed loads of Black Headed Gulls, so I spent a little while on them.
and finally a Dunnock searching through the undergrowth.
Lets hope for a better week ahead.
