First snow of the year ........

'' An apple a day keeps the Doctor away '', an old proverb that is really relevant as the harder weather sets in.

I can't remember seeing so many Blackbirds in my garden, the highest count I witnessed today was nine, both cocks and hens, fighting over the halved apples I had scattered on the  snow covered lawn.

I don't eat apples but buy them in for the birds and they are not very expensive, so add a few packs to your weekly shop over the weekend and help these guys survive the winter.

  1. The snow brought two Reed Buntings into my urban garden, I was really chuffed to see them
