There is still very little snow here at the moment (four hours drive south of here they have about one metre). The daily temperatures are around -10 to -15 degrees.
By sitting at my dad’s bedroom window, I finally managed to get a couple of decent pictures of the Grey Woodpecker which I wrote about last week.
and now we also have a Three-toed Woodpecker (Picoides dorsalis) visiting, but unfortunately this picture is a little blurred.
The Stoat or Ermin as it is called when it has white fur, has been more obliging, allowing me to get quite close when it feeds.
