North Cave Wetlands with a dusting of snow

We ventured out in the freezing temperatures for a winter walk in North Cave Wetlands. Clear skies and a breeze strong enough to make you feel the biting cold. The feeders were teeming with flocks of chirping Tree Sparrows and Chaffinches. Most of the wildfowl on the west side of the reserve concentrated on a patch of water free of ice. Highlights were a couple of Buzzards gliding over us and a Kestrel hovering over the Turret hide.
