Cold Edge and CB Today

I made a brief visit to Cromwell Bottom looking for spawning frogs this morning - no frogs, but odd patches of spawn, some fairly fresh and some deposited before the big freeze. I hope this extended cold spell isn't going to have to much of a negative effect on their breeding success.

Had plenty of Bullfinches and Siskins kicking around the feeders and a pair of Goosander on the river.

This afternoon, I made a quick visit to Fly Flat with ND. For the second time we had to abort trying to get over the top due to snow drifts.
A handfull of lapwings and the odd corvid was about it for Cold Edge and not a single Meadow Pipit in sight. This extended winter looks like holding everything back.
