Friday at the Flicks - Blackbird, Snow

This morning a female Blackbird sat close to me as I struggled to undo the frozen bolt on the back gate so we could go walkies. I sometimes get the feeling she is reminding me it is time to top up the seed feeders. The video clip was taken a few days ago as a female Blackbird came very close to pick up the seed and mini suet sticks I had dropped:



The snow from Wednesday night slowly melted on Thursday and had nearly all gone by late afternoon when a short sharp snow shower covered everything again. As soon as the cloud had passed through there was a sparkling pale blue sky for a short while:



Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you and take care in bad weather.

    1. Fortunately, Adrian, so far it is just one short sharp snow shower per day.

  4. Brrrr... I'm sure you'll be walking with care wearing your spiky things. Haven't seen any snow here since early December ~ I enjoy seeing it elsewhere better than here ;)

    1. Glo. The spikes are great. Can walk at normal speed no matter how much frozen snow or ice is about.
