More snow

Another three inches of the white stuff sent us scurrying down the hill to order some wood from the farmer - our coalman can't get through and fuel is running low...

On our way we met a bird and a tractor - or at least the tracks! I would love to do a time-lapse film on one stretch of road, to see all the different travellers - the snow reveals more than we normally see!

The garden is still teeming with birds - it's a birdie soup kitchen! We've been putting apples out for the blackbirds and have acquired a resident fieldfare who patrols the food and chases all the other birds off - especially the blackbirds, I think they are old rivals. He flicks his tail and dashes at them, when he is not neatly excavating all the apple flesh from the skin.
