Well it is the morning after the night before, and boy it didn't half throw it down last night. In the back garden it was 3.5 inches, which isn't a lot really, but for someone living near the sea, and only 10 feet above sea level, that's a lot. Usually we only get a few whiffs and waffles, then it melts. So up with the lark, I headed out before dawn to capture the beauty of it all before it all melted. And sadly, although the roads were okayish, I couldn't get out onto the M5 this morning for the grid locked traffic, so after 2 failed attempts to get into work, booked an enforced annual leave day. So that's why you get the following photo blog in the morning. I should be at work.
I'll let the photos do the talking !!
The opening photo is of the estate I live in and taken coming back after my walk, just liked it that's all. This is one of the farms near where I live.
Road down to Ebdon Bow farm and the River Banwell
The River Banwell... get Little Grebe, Kingfishers and Grey Heron here.
Ebdon Bow farm
Wick st Lawrence's very own post box
Arty shot of old apple trees and Ebdon Bow farm
Just because I like trees......
I was even up before farmer Meade
Snowy landscape towards the old village of Wick st Lawrence
.... and of course when trees die, they still have uses. Especially in this weather.
Far too arty a shot to be in a wildlife blog !
Sun was coming up now on the way home.
More pretentious arty stuff... above and below, I nearly used the bottom one as the opening photo on "my post".... get it, post, blog post, no, oh well never mind !
And yes this is a wildlife blog, so back in the garden an very active Blackcap was feeding on the Witch Hazel, and as I walked into the house, these Canada Geese shot over the roof. Just managed to get a shot before they were off.
A perfect end to an absolutely fabulous morning in the snow... me, a big kid, yep you got it !!
