Leaving Soon

Common Redpoll

We are into April now and don’t expect any more snow, albeit its still very cold. A small troup of Common Redpolls are still hanging around the garden but are expected to head back north before long. Cheery little fellows.

Morning sun with snowmist

As the snow finally melted away, there was still a considerable amount just to the right of this, the morning air was filled with ‘snowiest’ as the temperature rose. Auguries of good things to come.
