These picture were taken at seven o'clock this morning. The temperature was - 10 . This is the pond in our garden . The ice is four inches thick , and there is one area of ice free water where the waterfall is . Yesterday the sparrows where queueing up for a bath and a drink. At one time there was ten. It was highly comically as they moved along when one flew off.
I think the birds are alittle confused . Last week it was nice
and warm , now we are back to freezing .
