A Happy New Year! -4c last evening,-8c Thursday evening,-14c Wednesday evening, no wind, and 8 inches of lying snow.

Sunny day time average daytime temperature -2c

No badger emergence on Wednesday evening and minimal emergence since.

I have found that Leylandi trees have another use, there is no snow underneath them and they provide a perfect feeding spot for some of the wild birds, during the sumer they provide cover against surprise attacks from the sparrow hawk and also act as a good wind break.

I walked around our fields designated to feeding wild birds during winter this morning and was very pleased to see many small birds finding sustenance there.
