I've only just noticed your post at the top of the page, SANDRA !!! And there was me, thinking I had a coup ;-D It looks like exactly the same scene, feather for feather :o
I just came here because I forgot to post a video from yesterday of a Great Tit with markings gone awry:

Good morning all. First snow of the winter??
Birdies LG DU update.
Indeed Mike. The snow's the star this morning

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
A Crestie was first and last yesterday, and first this morning - the snowy perch didn't bother it:
No fewer birds today, tho a hogging squirrel made for a slow start. For quite a while I thought the Blue Tits were missing but plenty turned up later.
Our mottled Great Tit was back:
And then a Coal Tit similarly but more mildly "afflicted":
Lots of Crestie appearances, this one was a nice strong colour:
Several humans too, dunno what this chap thought he was playing at :-/
A Coat Tit was last in tonight.
Snow's fading. Squirrel isn't
There were definitely fewer birds today, as far as I've got.
First in was a squirrel - this wasn't the first in but it was the first to show its face, very fuzzy tho:
Plenty Cresties today, I wasn't going to snap any but this one arrived at a very bright moment:
I expect these rectangles have been here forever and I just haven't registered them - how/when/why? Did someone put mats down before the snow? Are there rectangles of under-floor heating? ;) Unfortunately my feeder cam history is deleted and saved snaps are all crops.
