The snow is here, not a lot though. We have had the bird feeders up for the wild birds for a few weeks now, today, they made good use of them. I have never witnessed an aggressive Robin before. This one today was bullying Finches, Wrens, Blue Tits, and Tree Creepers. That was until he tried his hand at a Blackbird, he ended up with a good smack.

Took Hedwig down to the Garden Centre for an hour today. As usual, everybody is impressed seeing a Snowy Owl close up. Not sure about the comment, "Is it real?". I still haven't managed to get all of the make-up off of his head after Hallowen.

Frozen pipes again today, got them thawed this afternoon. Because of the wind when it was snowing, we had to leave the hawk doors on, otherwise we would have ended up with very wet and frozen birds.
