Foot prints in the snow..
We had a little snow...
Well at 7.30 this morning it was a blizzard and the road looked like a ice ring, now the sun is melting it away but it's still bright and fresh.
the garden was covered in foot prints from the birds using the feeders..
My bird count has not been going to well due to the weather, it's not that I have not seen the birds but I was hoping to get a photo of each one rather than give you a long list.
I was going to save the garden bird till the end of the month when the Big garden bird watch was on, but my Robin looked so cute in the snow this morning I just had to take his photo..
The Blackbird is number 9 on my list but I have had this female in the garden feeding all morning.
so it was of to the park to see what other snowy photos I could take.

I got a bit lost in looking at all the shoe and boot patterns people had left behind..
and how the colour of the snow changed with the light..
On Saturday when it was quite mild I came across a Hedgehog rooting about in the leaf litter at the wood, so I hope it went back to bed with the cold weather here. It should not of been out at all at this time and not in the day....it did look very healthy though.
Not a great shot as it was bad light in the wood. The Squirrel is my second mammal of the year, I think they are more of them at the park now than ever before.
I will leave you with another shot of my Robin...
