We had to get through this very very narrow style, well i got stuck and couldn't stop laughing. From there it was a real struggle to get up this field, the snow covered everything and it was very uneven underneath. When we got to the top of the field after all this struggling i couldn't believe it when i saw 3 blokes riding past in the snow uphill on mountain bikes (they are a different breed). From here it was a walk through the farm yard and through an avenue of trees to come at the top end of Belper Lane.
10 minutes later we were in my garage eating breakfast, they wouldn't take there boots off to come into the house. After brekki and a chat the three Blackbrookers had another 3/4 mile to walk Home.
The photos are from my walk with the lads plus a couple of pics i did the next day after some more snow and a couple of bird pics from my back garden.

Until 2 days ago the bird hierarchy of the birds was straight forward. When the Dunnock eats the food he is bombed by the Robin, then the Robin is chased by the Blackbird. Well since the arrival of Thrushy he's in charge, he has even taken out a pigeon. Fascinating to watch nature at work.

See you next week
