First day of February

A dove catching a little bit of sun near the house today….

….some ornamental grass, brown and leathery and waving in the wind has been identified, by him, as something useful. He was seen in the garden pulling it up today in the sun shine. Almost like spring!

By 4 o’clock the birds were gathering in their latest favorite tree waiting for the evening sun, against the pastel sky.

Yet by  4.30  the birds were gone. A quick  flurry of snow came sweeping  down switching off  the  sun now hiding behind the grey. Silence.

And just as suddenly twenty minutes later the light was on again……… for a little bit.

      1. …. I just checked accuweather, which I find pretty reliable for this area. Going to be -4 tonight – maybe too cold to snow, but I wouldn’t rule it out. Met office says heaviest snow in UK comes between 0 and minus 2, with cold ground.


  1. I wonder where the birds find shelter when it snows…. our Southern California birds don’t know how lucky they are. Lovely photos.
