Last night I had the camcorder set up just in case there were any firework displays to let in the New Year. I was not disappointed as there was a beautiful display from a house not far away and I could watch it through the front room window. Fortunately Bobby takes little notice of the noise after the first couple of explosions and goes back to sleep. I had to use manual focus which I got wrong so here is a short extract from the five minute display.
Yesterday morning had been the first time for about ten days we could return to our usual route for the early morning walk - no snow, no ice. This morning I woke to the return of the white stuff. Not a lot as yet and quite pretty to look at
though I am not sure the garden visitors took quite the same attitude.
A Carrion Crow used its heavy beak to sweep aside the snow by moving its head from side to side so as to find any seeds left over from yesterday.
Well, here we are, a new decade - but quite honestly it doesn't look a lot different from the last one ;)
