A photograph of some holly for Christmas although this was taken before the recent cold weather. The birds have stripped the berries from the hedges over the past few days. This morning as well as the usual blackbirds I saw two Redwings in the garden. They are not very regular garden visitors here and many years we don't see them at all although they are probably in the surrounding woods.
The snow is melting very rapidly now as the temperatures have started to rise. I think there will still be some snow for Christmas Day but not that much, more of a sludgy muddy Christmas rather than a white one!
Happy Christmas to everyone.
