An opening salvo in the snow

Our initial visit was mostly about swanning about and beaming, to be honest - Englishman/woman's home...castle...etc.

On the bird front, braving (or surviving) the snow were our first 21 species - Reed Bunting, Moorhen, Fieldfare, Redwing, Bullfinch and Cormorant included. And the tiny patch of unfrozen water over the road on Roach Pit was crammed with ducks - Gadwall, Wigeon, Tufties, Mallard.

Perhaps less welcome on the biodiversity front were about 50 Harlequin Ladybirds hibernating in the jamb of the patio door!

It has begun....
