First Snow at Wolsingham

We have had the first snow and ice of the winter over the last five days at Wolsingham. We have had four or five inches of snow and temperatures have been below freezing for several days.
The Great Spotted Woodpecker has returned to the garden feeders in the last 48 hours. Food is obviously hard to come by.

Kingfisher and starlings

I had good views of Kingfisher and Starlings at Low Barns last week. The Kingfisher was fishing from its post outside the West Pasture Hide early on the morning of 3rd November and the Starlings were flocking together before roosting in the reedbeds at dusk on the 4th.
