Snow & Snails

Posted by Ian

Nasty day yesterday,snow and rain all day,found the remains of another fox under the snow,natural causes?,I don’t think so.Nice morning,although there were lots of snow pockets still around.First light watched a barn owl hunting over the old tip,probably making up for poor returns over the last two days.Very rarely hunt in bad weather,their feathers are not very waterproof,but great to see.The afternoon was even warmer for a change,counted over thirty fieldfares amongst the dunes,they are still here due to the banded snail population,and feed on them them with relish using their ‘anvils’ (see pic).
