It's Cold And Frosty In Llangollen

A frosty Santa and a cobweb on NB Henry

Frost on the branches

A frosty scene on the canal near Llangollen

Yesterday we woke to a scene of white, but it wasn't snow just a very heavy frost. On NB Henry Santa had a frosty coat next to a frosty spider's web. The birds outside were feasting on the nuts, meal worms, seeds and suet block. So we were entertained by their antics as  we ate a breakfast. We had an unusual visitor a jay and later a nuthatch as well as the blackbirds, blue tits, coal tits, great tits, long tailed tits, chaffinches and a robin.  Later walking along the towpath with Ben I took a picture of  the heavy hoar frost on the trees and the lift bridge enhanced a frosty scene. A large bird of prey sat in a tree on the opposite side of the canal and it  just stayed there as we passed.....I think it was a buzzard looking at the bird book. An enjoyable walk ............I was wearing thermals and Ben of course has a fur coat and he even stayed clean as the ground was rock hard.
