The Old Vic- the day after

The storm is well over now with a thaw setting in and most of the snow melting at Beddington. Holly, Jacob and I were finally able to travel again so we headed up to the Old Vicarage where the thaw has been slower and there was still plenty of snow around.

A quick walk round the garden and round Worminghall produced plenty of winter thrushes. 

 Fieldfare (above) and Redwings (below)- 32 Redwings feeding in the Sheep Field with 5 Fieldfare, 3 Song Thrush and 4 Blackbird. 

 This Pheasant joined the Redwings 
Deeper snow in Oxfordshire than what we experienced at Beddington. Had a Muntjac from the car and also had a couple of Mallard flying over the garden (uncommon here) and 15+ Goldfinch and 6 Chaffinch.
