I love the snow, and it's rare enough in the UK to make a fuss (though, yes it is somewhat embarrassing that a light fall causes the whole country to grind to a halt). These photos were actually taken three years ago, but I wanted to share them out here as I don't have the liberty to just go for long walks whenever it takes my fancy these days, and I'm sure it looks just like this around the Avon Gorge right now!
A clattering of Jackdaws (Corvus monedula in Betula pendula)
Two for Joy (a pair of Pica pica in a mixed coniferous-deciduous copse)
Corvus corone in flight
Quercus robur as if draped in ermine, fitting for a Royal tree

There is one disproportionately large root that needs further carving, but this has not been done yet for the health of the tree.
This is the new preferred front of the tree...
...and the same tree in February 2010, which provoked this satirical reaction from a friend!
