I hope you all had a nice break and have returned to work fresh faced and well rested! ;)

I've been over in East Germany for Xmas, where it was fairly mild, dipping to around -4 in the day time.

The usual -20 winter temperatures didn't arrive and I think it was probably colder here in Wales for much of the time, although we did have quite a bit of snow with around 30 cm of fresh powder sitting on top of the hedgerows when I left on Saturday.

Not much wildlife to report I'm afraid. I only saw a few sparrows (sperlinge), the odd blackbird (amsel), a solitary heron, cormorant and a herd of deer feeding in a snow white field.

Another cold snap on the way for us, according to Derek so you might find you get a bit snow over the next few days and temperatures are set to fall rapidly with these clear skies.

Don't forget to give the birds a helping hand. I'm currently feeding a fairly tame young blackbird. She comes to within a few feet of me. I'm not sure if this is down to stupidity or hunger?
