Well, cold enough for us over here anyhow! It was minus five when I awoke this morning, on the weather station above chez bish, and we’re in a small dip between hills and shielded from the worst of the winter winds. It’s clearly having an effect on the local wildlife, as we were today oversailed by a couple of buzzards, who normally keep to the woodland. And this evening the heron was back and took up a twilight watching brief beside the pond. He’s been here all week, and with the nearby streams all icing over I guess he’s getting peckish. Ought we let him take a couple of fish…?
