Little did I think I would be spending all my time blogging about the weather these last few weeks, but the snow at this time of year has been unusually early and severe for Cardiff…
We had about four inches of snow yesterday and another couple on top of that today. It was weighing down the trees first thing but has gradually been dropping off in mini avalanches in the sun. But there’s a freeze to come, which is not good news.
I took a few pictures of the trees and the birds attracted to the bird table – although I missed a shot of a blackcap on the table and a redwing in a nearby tree.
Otherwise all the usual suspects were around – robin, dunnock, blackbird, blue tit, coal tit, great tit, magpie, collared dove and woodpigeon.
The grey squirrels also came out to warm themselves in the sun.
