Queensbury, the frozen north.

             Foxhill Park         A good 3" of snow today .

After heavy snow yesterday evening and into the night Queensbury was left with a good 3" covering which ,despite sunshine most of the day , very little thawing took place and temperatures have dropped to below zero tonight.
If as promised, the heavy snow and cold come across from Russia next week we may find ourselves turning up an odd Sibe or two.

Busy skies today which always seem to happen on cold sunny days with birds desperate to top up their food supply.
These were mainly small gulls and Starlings although 2 good sightings were :- 2 Collared Doves over Chapel Lane, a rare sighting up here for winter, and 3 Herring gulls over the co op midday heading >W.
Up to 4 Blue Tits were on the feeders in Chapel Lane graveyard and again several Robins were around Foxhill area.
Hope you all have a good birdie weekend.

Once the ground softens the Lapwings should be back with a few Goldies hopefully.
