    We have snow as well
    We don't often get much here so always a bit of excitement when it arrives

    This Chicken is not amused, she could almost be frowning!

    The ducks are in a reduced area of the pond

    The Morhens are launching raids pinching the Duck food if they can.

    My little Soay Sheep don't seem to mind

    And my Ponies have been raiding the Bamboo!

    Another great picture post! I know England doesn't get snow often, does it stay around long?

    Where I live in North Shropshire the snow is here for a week or so max at any one time.
    Last Summer/Autumn we had record rain falls and prior to the snow, it was a mud bath out there!
    Ducks were happy though!
    The East side of the country often gets it far worse

    Two years ago we had record winter cold temps for the UK down to -20 degrees C here that caused all sorts of problems across the country.
    The condensate drain in my central heating boiler froze and we ended up without heating or hot water till I worked out what had gone wrong.
    At the moment worst it has been this year is about -4C

    My Soay has a beard!
