Back On The Pavement
Another bitterly cold day in the field today with that 'lazy' easterly wind still biting and there were a number of snow flurries to contend with. I've noticed now that there are very few birds singing compared to how it was before the cold snap. A couple of weeks ago when I first went up on to the pavement there were plenty of birds singing, but this morning it was absolutely 'dead'. I saw three birds today and these were a sinigng Yellowhammer, Bullfinch and a Woodcock, and that was it.
I heard the Met Office saying today that this cold weather would last in to next week and the 30 day forecast was for below average temperatures!
