Snowy Yellowhammer

Heading up to Sun Rising at 8 this morning through the snow, the sun was just beginning to break through the clouds, that pale blue of an English winter sky starting to come through.  The burial ground looked just beautiful.

I took a shot of this little fellow with robins, sparrows, dunnocks, blackbirds and tits, on and under the birdfeeders.  A rabbit was there too, looking a good deal warmer in fur than the rest of us.

If you go to Sun Rising, do be careful of icy patches.  Although the snow has mainly melted in the sunshine, out of the sun it is very cold and due to remain so.
