First Winter Dusting

Woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning

Beautiful.....

Thank goodness I cleaned and filled all the feeders yesterday.

Hope you enjoy looking at my birds in their winter wonderland

BBs always in garden early

Oh dear a think a sprawk may have been at my loveley white pigeon 

A bit of iceskating

No very happy looking dunnock

An ICE bath

And perhaps my 2020  xmas card

Well that was a great day of taking pics. Another weather warning for snow tonight.

Hope you all enjoyed and maybe its put you all in the mood for Christmas now

  • Lovely Linda, always nice to see the snowy pictures. We have had no snow up here yet!! Forcast is wintery the next few days though. Hard frost this morning, the baths and drinkers had lids of ice, poor birdies were picking at it. time to get extra layers on me thinks!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Fortunately, no snow here (yet). Good to see your pictures of it, although the birds might not have appreciated so much. Mind you, I'm not so sure if they are still getting in the bath. They must be mad!

  • Brrrrr!! I hate winter and the cold. Mind you it's been so dark miserable and wet down here in the south I might change my mind.
    This is when birds appreciate supplementary feeding. Nice shots of your garden favourites. I wonder what happened to Pidge?

    Thanks Tony
    Aww nothing wrong with a little chill factor lol
    Well from the amount of time I have saw the sprawk take a pidgeon that seems to be the area it starts plucking first so my guess its caught it but got away..this time!

  • Lovely scenes from your garden Linda, brrr it is freezing today, I am just about to put up a couple from here today but my hands not working properly to type, will have brew first!!! Gorgeous pic of your Robin, shame about the pigeon but hope it survives now with the cold. Bathing blackbird in the icy conditions, brave but has to be done:-)

    Lot to learn

  • Looks like you had some sun/light for some of your pictures Linda, or you've got a very bright flash light. Its not so "sunny Suffolk" today with about 2/3cms of snow this morning followed by rain and all the greyness in the world. Still can't complain been watching a flock of about 30/40 finches on the feeder's, with only 16 feeder perches it gets quite messy. I guess the snow bomb in Scotland missed your area. Looks like one blackie doing some ice skating, our pond is frozen as well.
