A couple of updates

The Siberian Nutcracker (Nucifraga caryocatactes ssp macrorhynchos) is still alive and visiting our bird table most days

I have seen it eating Sun Flower seeds, fat and bread.

I decided to add a bedroom to the snow shelter I built with Emma.  Firstly I removed all the fresh snow from the back of the shelter and then piled new snow on the back and allowed it to freeze.  Once frozen, I cut a hole in the back of the shelter from the inside

And hollowed out the new snow to make a second room large enough to sleep in.

The bed is raised so that cold air sinks below the level of the bed and the small distance between the bed and shelter roof help to trap warm air.
