First snow of winter

Although winter has not 'officially' arrived (20 December is the date), snow fell for the first time this season this morning, giving a complete thin covering here at Chaffinch House and elsewhere in the Chiltern Region. It soon melted but as a result, activity in the garden has been busy, with a Jay, up to 7 Common Blackbirds, 32 House Sparrows and 6 Goldfinches

In the Chess Valley, we still have 8 LITTLE EGRETS favouring the ditches just east of Bois Mill but no subsequent sign's of Chris Pontin's Waterside Water Rail
