A quick run into Norwich for breakfast at the excellent 'Bill's' and a visit to the St Andrews Antique Fair saw Linda and I back home before midday.
The day was overcast, with a continual threat of snow, and it's almost as if the birds are anticipating a lean spell: the garden has been full all afternoon. Blackbirds have forgotten their usual intolerance to each other: at times there were over a dozen feeding together on suet. Similarly, up to five Robins have been flitting around together. Overhead a couple of Buzzards loitered, while Red-legged Partridges, Pheasants and - most welcome - a Stock Dove have been feeding and drinking from the ponds all afternoon.
