A Perfect Winter Day

Monday, January 16th 2023

After a very short snow shower and a hard frost, the reserve was bathed in winter sunshine.

Up on the moor there was only a light dusting of snow.

Long shadows were cast behind the stones up on the top.

Down in the centre of the reserve the lake surface was frozen.

The snowy footpaths through the Scrapes were in stark contrast to the stunning blue sky.

Several Roe deer were observed today; easier to spot in the winter months without the cover of leaves on the trees.

The back garden to the Field Centre was full of birds; Redpoll, Greenfinch, Bullfinch, Reed Bunting, Nuthatch, Robin, Great Tit, Marsh Tit, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Jay and Great Spotted Woodpecker were all seen at the feeders.
