What can one say about February ? Very wet, cold, icy with a short spell of snow in Horndean. The photo gallery this month shows (1) and (2) Snow at Dell Piece West on 2nd February (3) Frost on leaves, a frequent sight this month and (4) the pond at Pyle Farm frozen over like most others.
A really cold start for the new year! All our pictures so far were made difficult because I was unable to feel my fingers. (1) Moles were very busy at Catherington Down and were still active at the end of January digging through hard frozen ground. (2) Frosted oak leaves at Dell Piece West on the 7th Jan, I notice one of the leaves is from a Turkey Oak. (3) and (4) were both taken at Catherington Down on the 9th Jan, the only bird seen was a kestel sitting in a tree hoping to spot a mouse.
