Foxglove in the Snow

Thursday, December 2nd 2010

No apologies for yet more snowy pictures.  In the two days since the last post a whole lot more snow has been falling.  Landrovers can manage to get up our track, but cars should park on the parade square.  The two visitors who walked in today were rewarded with spectacular views throughout the reserve.  

Hide and lake in the snow

Here at the lake the warm colour of the hide was glowing in the sunshine.

It was nice to see that Mother Nature has upholstered our new benches!

Up on the wetland the snow was sparkling on the trees and the ponds were not only covered with ice, but with snow as well.

The bird feeders were seeing frantic activity after some of them were filled this morning.  This Robin was awaiting his turn on the peanut feeder.

Lastly, here's Annie, showing just how heavy the blizzards were this morning when we were out and about.
