It started snowing around 7:30 this morning and it’s still going four hours later and it makes it difficult for a chap to get around when the snow comes up to the top of a chap’s legs.

I wouldn’t like to be a bird this weather having to sit out all night and the best you can hope for in the morning is a cold worm for breakfast. Not nice.

Birdie, our resident Kestrel, roosts overnight above our balcony and this morning she didn’t get up until nearly 8 o’clock. I can’t say I blame her as it was snowing quite heavily and it was late getting light. We saw her fly off but I can’t imagine how she’ll get on for food in this.

The weather forecasters have predicted snow over the next two or three days – but then what do they know? :shock:
