Sunny spells, light snow flurries (none settling), -1º, moderate to fresh NE,  -8º in the wind! A change on Thursday.

Did not get out today as I had certain other things to do but Roger Wyatt was along the river and found a pair of Mandarin Duck, they flew towards the Four Arches railway bridge.
As I was in most of the day I was also watching the garden, not much change but an increase in Chaffinch numbers to over twenty, also birds visiting more frequently presumably needing to “fuel up” more frequently in this cold weather. The Pheasant has found the feeding tray with sultanas on but he is a bit too big to stay on for long!
