Life in the Freezer
A catch up from the cold snap and a few days feeling under the weather myself with a temp of -10 degrees on Saturday in Willington at 11am.
The Goldcrest was taking advantage of the scarcity of liquid water in my garden and the Goosanders graced the weir at Great Barford. Only drakes on this occasion but over a dozen had been reported.
I'm always amazed at how nature survives our weather extremes. The hares numbered double figures and cared more about boxing than finding somewhere to shelter. No David Attenborough though - maybe too cold for him?
