Carolyn feeding a robin

Did you notice that the snowy weather brought birds closer to us - mainly because they were desperate for food?

Here's a great photo from Richard on Flickr who was out on Moel Famau with Carolyn when she put out her hand to tempt a robin with some bread.

I watched the BBC nature programme, Snow Watch, and they were telling us that country birds in particular were coming into towns and people's gardens because there had been so much snow that they couldn't find food.

Cue the bullfinch that dropped in on our bird table in Mold. I've never seen one before and, although I wouldn't class myself as a twitcher [I'm more of a twitterer], we felt lucky to see it.

Did you spot anything? The Snow Watch team are interested to hear.
