Yes it has been very cold here, as in many other parts of the United Kingdom. 

This photograph was taken on Sunday from the bedroom window!
We had a Snowfall of about 3-4 inches.
However, it is warm in my workroom and I have enjoyed watching the Birds.

They have stripped the fruit from the top of our Neighbours tree.
I have not seen this species in our garden before, it is a mixed flock of Fieldfare and Redwing, very pretty coloured feathers.
(I don't know much about Birds so I looked it up in my 'Garden Birds of Britain and Europe' book!)
Normally we get lots of Blackbirds, Starlings, Bluetits, Sparrows and Wood Pigeons.

Whilst watching the Birds, I have been making and feathering some mini ones...

......and furred a few Rats!


  1. No snow here - yet! You're certainly making good use of your time indoors. The birds are very impressive.

    There's certainly nothing to beat "furring a rat" on a cold day - lol

  2. Looks as though you had the same amount of snow as we did Mags!
    Love the peacocks and pheasants they look brill. x

  3. those look so real I love the peacocks too!

  4. Hope you will be bringing your rats and chicks to Birmingham Mags....

  5. Snow here was much the same - now slush. Great birds Mags.

  6. Loving the Chooks, Mags. Stay warm.

  7. It's a lot of snow!
    I loved your miniature birds.

  8. It sure looks cold!! Love the birds Mags!!
