After an absence of nine years without heavy snow we awoke for the second time this year to a snowy Sunday!
There was something quite calming just sitting with a mug of coffee in our hands, watching the snow flakes fall in time to some Irish music from The Gloaming, playing in the background, while the smell from the oven of roasted squash, sweet potato and garlic tantalizing our taste buds!
Again we watched in amazement as thousands of birds swooped over the fields nearby, a few of them landing in the willow hedgerow and the garden, so we could get a closer look. A friend who is a keen bird watcher stood on the coast path nearby for 6 hours and counted 24,000 Fieldfares, 7,000 Starlings and 16,000 Redwings fly by!

When the snow stopped we ventured out to walk the dog and noticed that some people were enjoying sliding down East Cliff. Having snow covering the beach is such an unusual sight!
Hope the weather doesn't affect your life this week, until next time.
