Less snow, more ice.

A night of heavy freezing leaving a bright clear day until late afternoon when dark clouds came over bringing some short lived snow showers then back to freezing by dark. Only 5 days now to the shortest day and then we,re on the long but steady road back to lighter nights.
Four early morning geese came over >W making me think Pink Footed but as they came over in part darkness they were seen to be Canadas probably looking for unfrozen water.
A single Heron, probably on the same idea, went over >E.
Plenty male Blackbirds about at the moment but strangely no females, is anyone else finding a shortage of females?
An unconfirmed report through NK of a Lapland Bunting on Soil Hill earlier in the week( B.O.G.) but this was neither reported or put on the groups blog site?
Weekend again so lets see what goodies it turns up other than the dreaded Christmas shopping, or is that just me thats turned into Ebenezer.
BS

Nothing doing over this way or coming into me this week Bri - think everyone must be shopping and yes makes me feel like Ebenezer too. Interesting about the Lap Bunt, just seen Nigels report but not seen or heard anything else.
I have managed a few Grey Wags over this week though (and 1 over Sainsbury's)and an od Nuthatch on the garden feeders but that's about it!
