No snow here last weekend, though it got bitterly cold if caught out in the high winds… … High winds – Terrapin Station… Fliss has been buying Grateful Dead CDs to replace the worn out vinyl…. with that little digression over back to snow (hey oh) …
I saw these clouds the other week, last week or was it this week… a few days ago perhaps. It’s snow falling from high altitude clouds, according to the CAS.
The tree that is so often in my sky pictures, is in our opposite neighbours garden…. it’s become the home of several bird families. The Blackbirds have been there for several years, and some years there have been two or three nests on the go, they tend to nest quite low down in the lower branches.
Then last year or maybe the one before, a couple of Pidgeons moved in, they nest just about in the middle, and carry away 12 inch twigs to nest build. They were back a few weeks ago building their nest, but in the last few days a couple of Magpies have been nest building in the higher reaches of the tree. They seem to drag off whole shed branches, sometimes 2 or 3 feet in length, they then have to fly in steps to get to the top.
I think there might be a bit of a barney when the pidgeons come back, it’s more exciting than Eastenders….
