A real howler is battering us tonight. During the day it relaxed considerably but first thing it blew with nasty, biting snow. Sheltering in the doorway to greet the customers I was rather surprised to find a Dunnock flitting around, pretty sure this is only my second record of this species at work.
The spring theme was continued earlier in the week, a Black-headed Gull was amongst the Commons on the playing fields. It doesn't feel like spring right now.
