Christmas past

It looks like we are going to enjoy a mild Christmas, all bets off for snow, so maybe a glance back at birds and weather a few winters ago might be fun:

We haven't had Long tailed Tits to the feeders yet this winter, though they are to be heard making their way along the boundary hedgerow.. there are 7 birds in the picture above, I can almost feel the chill from looking back at that picture!

Looking back, it was a lovely time to be in County Wicklow, as long as you were not expected anywhere soon...
