The dust of snow

As we slide into winter, the last fortnight's snow has not transfigured the landscape so significantly that it is a new one; it is more a decoration of a known one. Some impressions:
  • Robins squabbling in mid-air
  • A mouse, trapped and set in ice in a watering can
  • The pulsing of a barn owl over the top field
  • Red sentinel crab apples, glistening in frosty morning sunshine

  1. Hi Ads, I still can't contribute hedgefinders ?
    I was going to say that I saw a fox in the road outside our house this evening ( & my ducks are sleeping nervously on the ice on the paddling pool) and I also saw 5 cold herons standing in a field together last week like old men with their collars pulled up.
