It's times like these when the pictures,taken from indoors of course, say it all....

It has been so very very cold with so much snow!!!
For the last 2 days we have been clearing a path to the bird table and feeders almost every hour!
Bread ,cereals, oats, cake and margarine have been their favourites and lots of new comers have been visiting the table...including woodpeckers- lesser and greater spotted, thrush and blackbirds.

A Big Thanks to our sponsors

Abi and Mike, who visited earlier this year and made a very kind donation, have paid for all the food for the birds throughout December and will also cover January and possibly February depending on the weather....Thanks Abi & Mike!!!!

What's with the weather?

Over the past few weeks temperatures have really fluctuated.

This week while the UK and most of the rest of Europe seem to be in the grips of a
big freeze we here have had sunshine and temperatures of 15/18 degrees!

Water levels are rising on the Danube and on the lake which is very good news.
The lake itself keeps freezing over then thawing out again like it has today.

We know this weather won't last , and that's probably for the best,
the weather forecast says back to minus temps with some snow....

...but for now some of us have time to make the most of it!
