And so there were – more than thirty, at a quick count!
I’m not entirely sure whether they were redwings or thrushes (they looked like thrushes, but some of them seemed to have red bits on their sides), but both species are on the red list, so I’m very glad our garden could help them, especially in this horrible weather.
In the back garden, we have our more usual visitors: blackbirds, chaffinches, tits (blue, great and long-tailed) plus the pigeons and doves - when dog isn’t galloping around out there, enjoying himself in the snow. It’s very powdery today (not good for snowmen, or we’d have one in the front garden) but dog loves it. I did try to get a pic, because he made me smile so much, but it's just a spaniel-shaped blur. Instead, here's the back garden, just after the sun came out following this morning's snow dump.
