21st December 2009

Snow everywhere for the last two days and the frozen ground is making Snipe appear in odd places everywhere.  This afternoon, for example, one walking about near the White House Nursery, and one flying through the children's playground; they are popping up all over the place in their search for some non-frozen ground to feed in.  Pete had loads on Sunday, as well as a Water Rail walk across the Holmes Road, presumably similarly on the search for accessible wet habitat.
