Warnham & Horsham Park in the snow

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

Long-tailed Tit

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

An impromptu, albeit short visit given the weather, to Nymans Gardens

The forecast for the UK today is for freezing temperatures and snowfall thoughout.

I headed off to do some necessary food shopping.  As I left the sky was dark!!

It cleared a bit and, given I was hungry, decided to take a detour and go home via Nymans Gardens.  Given this was the sky when I go there, ....

I had lunch first.. a very tasty Tuscan Bean Soup and a cheese scone.. very nice and very warming.

The headed off for a short wander.. it was snowing lightly all the time..

Snowdrops in the snowflakes!!

The 'haze' is the snow...

Good to have some 'fresh' air.. even for such a short walk!!
