Very nearly. As most will know to get snow here in Torbay is very unusual but the week before Christmas it arrived – in bucket loads.
The cold weather produced some brilliant sunsets
The snow turned the grey winter’s garden into one coated with icing sugar and giving off a bright glow – magical
Our bird feeding station has been a hive of activity during these unprecedented cold temperatures. Day after day below zero and with hoar frosts so thick they look like snow.
This chaffinch has been nick-named “ bloater” she is so fat her belly touches the ground. Bless.
This is a rare visitor – a pied wagtail. He knows where he is well off and is camping nearby as we now see him several times a day.
Today 27th December is the first day the temperature has risen above freezing and the remaining snow and ice in the sheltered parts of the garden have, at last thawed. Snow does of course remain on Dartmoor but I have no intention of photographing that!
