Was going for a dental appointment today but the main road I needed was shut due to an accident.. the roads were treacherous with ice and snow. I re-arranged my appointment for another day
I waiting for the snow to ease and when it did I headed off for Warnham Nature Reserve
A lot of the water was frozen... the numerous gulls weren't impressed.
neither were this pair of resting Mallards
even Ponders thought it wasn't good..
Round by the feeders was a bit more activity
At least 3 Robins were about
Cheery colours of the male Pheasant
and winter colour of the male Chaffinch
A female Great Spotted Woodpecker was glad of a 'fatty' meal
and a Reed Bunting hoovered up the seeds
as did this Song Thrush
I then headed off for a bit to eat in Horsham.. hot coffee was welcome as it was freezing today
and then a short walk in Horsham Park.. where it snowed!!
At least it was good to have a bit of exercise and some fresh air
Oakham, a Priest House and Euston Walled Garden
