Cheating …

We  had to visit the EcoMuseum this afternoon so took the opportunity to have a wander round after we had done what had to be done … lovely sunny, very cold afternoon and lots of the inmates were hibernating but there were enough critters out in the snow to enjoy. Obviously these birds and other beasts are not wild and so don’t “count” as they are in a zoo – but a rather special zoo. Run by a charitable trust it only has Quebec species and all the ones they have are individuals that cannot for various reasons be released into the wild. They also do a lot of valuable educational work with schools etc.  Anyway – here are some nice creatures, close up:
