Here we go again

Same view in Foxhill as yesterday but whitewashed
Chapel Lane, snow and fog
Rain turning to ice this evening

So its back to the start with the snow again although the rain was starting to move it until after dark when it froze on landing.
Snow today from 0800hrs until 1500hrs combined with fog making it a birdless day other than the garden feeders packed with Starlings and House Sparrows going mainly for the fat balls and Lyndas oatcakes. Water is usually the biggest problem but today has kept above freezing so that made the job easier.
Hope this weather improves for the weekend, I think the forecast is warmer which usually means fog up here in the gods but we shall see.
Bet the Linnet flocks recorded yesterday have struggled today unless they headed for lower ground. Has anyone else had unusual winter flocks of Linnets?
