Snowy Foxglove

Monday, January 4th 2010

Yet more snowy pictures from Foxglove today. It was a monochrome world that awaited this morning as the whole of Foxglove seemed white with varying shades of grey! This view onto the moor is a very good example.

The only snippets of colour came from the jewel feathers of the Robin, Blue Tit and Bullfinch who were seen at the feeding stations. They really caught the eye as they flashed by. The birds need all our help at this time of year. The Holly trees have almost been stripped bare as the birds are looking everywhere for food. Remember, you can put out stale cake crumbs and cheese as well as the usual seeds in your back garden. They will really appreciate this as the cold snap continues.

This dramatic picture was taken along Risedale Beck underneath the big, old Ash tree above one of the bridges.

The last photo is of Hector squeezing himself over one of the narrow bridges on the moor! The boys have plenty of food at the moment and seemed right at home in the snowy weather.
