🏴 Monday 15th January 2024 🥶🌨️ -2C ~ Wind NNW @ 18MPH ~ Yesterday evening, the heavy snow showers began and have not stopped since. As of now, I estimate that approximately 8 inches have accumulated.
|The view this morning.
|This Fieldfare takes immediate advantage and fends off all comers to protect his find!
I was well prepared with the feeders topped up, the apples strategically placed and the ground saturated with seeds. As the saying goes, "Build it and they will come." I've had an enjoyable day 'comfort birding' mostly from the bedroom window and it looks like more of the same for the next few days.
|Always good to see Brambling in the garden.
|Another Brambling taking advantage of the sunflower hearts!
|Siskin through the bedroom window.
|A Lesser Redpoll sheltering from the latest snow flurry.
|A bit of a stern-looking chap!
|Not sure who was actually 'comfort-birding' but I think these Red Squirrels are well able to handle the conditions.
