The walled garden at Cammo Estate is full of snowdrops now, though they're not all fully out. The garden yesterday was also still very snow covered.
We had a lovely walk round the Estate Grounds, it's a beautiful area and yesterday was full of birdsong. Long tailed tits, blue tits, great tits and chaffinches seemed to be everywhere, all chirping away. As one mixed flock of these birds flitted in the branches overhead a flock of what must have been waxwings flew above the trees, chattering. All this to the accompaniment of constant robin song and the occasional drumming of a great spotted woodpecker, or probably two, duetting. Plus a siskin flying over the frozen pond, muttering to themselves as a crow carefully skated by. We also saw blackbirds, magpies and a thrush (probably a redwing, but as is so often the way with thrushes at this time of the year, it wouldn't let us get the best view)
