It’s gone! Last nights forecasted snow passed us by, rain came and washed away the snow. There was a glimpse of green, all be it briefly, then we were shrouded in mist.
I’m sure the change in the weather has offered some respite for wildlife desperate for food, the ground is still frozen solid but at least there was chance of turning over some leaf litter in search of a grub or two.
A kestrel took things easy, watched and waited for voles with no place to hide, now their network of snow tunnels has melted away.
And a squirrel* eyed up my new bird feeder
* he doesn’t look malnourished does he?
