Winter chill

While snow on the uplands is a beautiful sight, it is a tough time for birdlife. 

Many birds take to the lower levels and find some shelter in dips and along walls or fences. Plus there is always the chance of some food at feeders close to the farm. 

It is a reminder that at this time of year a leaving out food for wild birds is a good idea, with winter being a time when sources of food are limited, especially when there is snow on the ground. Check out this BBC advice and help wildlife this winter.
