The frozen village

Keeping warm
Here we go again
A wintery Chapel Lane

A few days mild then back in at the deep end with heavy snow yesterday and sub zero temperatures throughout today. To add to that heavy snow is forecast for the weekend.
Resident birds are again desperately flying around garden to garden looking for food and harder to find, water. Several gardens around here have feeders up and bread thrown out but very few people think to put out water during freezing conditions. I suppose thats because its much harder to keep up to when its freezing. I can put warm water out up here only to see it freeze over within 15 mins.
Down by the garage today several corvids were huddled up to chimneys keeping warm but the Magpies didnt seem affected by the cold in the least.
We,ll have to wait and see what the weekend has to throw at us now.
