Thank you to Hazel for the award that she has included me in - I can't show you it on here though, as I don't know how to get it from Hazel's blog and onto mine...I'm hopeless I know! I heard from my lovely pal Sarah today too. Sarah is a very talented lady and has just sent me her blog address, so do check it out (it's on my blog list if you scroll down).
We have had some snow here but not very much, so the grown up side of me has been quite relieved, whilst the kid in me has been envious of all the heavy drifts that many have been having. "My" wildlife has been getting extra rations to keep them going of course. I heard yesterday that little birds, such as Blue Tits, can lose one third of their body weight overnight in very cold weather just from trying to keep warm and that's the main reason that it's vital to keep feeding them once you have started.They can be so underweight when they wake up that if there is no food where they expect it to be, just having to search elsewhere can be enough to finish them off. My little birds are too shy to get photographs of, but these are some of my regular pigeons making the most of some extra rations!
Well, that's all for now folks! Don't forget to check back next week to see what Blog Candy I have up for grabs!!! Lindsay
