After the brilliant and warm sun of yesterday, this morning dawned with grey skies and heavy rain. This has now turned the remaining snow on the roads and pavements to slippery slush - nice!
The bird numbers in the garden have returned to normal for this time of the year with the Goldfinches now about 17 and only something in the region 8 greenfinches. The blackbirds number about 6 which is a very high number for a garden that normally only sees one occasionally. The Song Thrush continues to put in the occasional appearance (last seen yesterday). I haven't seen either of the Bramblings for two-three days now. BUT Mr. and Mrs. Blackcap continue their feeding regime and yesterday and, amazingly again today, I had a very very rare visit from a Pied Wagtail.
Wonder what tomorrow will bring in terms of weather and birds...
Don't think it likes getting its feet cold ..
