Sunshine and snow

Although it's brilliant sunshine now we had another dusting of snow this week and there have been some very hard frosts overnight. Yesterday we had yellowhammers on the feeding station and it seems as if we're the join between two lots of robin territories - we've seen a few dust ups! Winter hasn't quite given up yet although spring is definitely chasing hard on its heels with some glorious bulbs showing their head above ground and the first few seedlings are appearing in pots in the greenhouse.
Despite the glorious sunshine we beavered away at the machinery and got CJS to print on time, this week it's nine pages with 53 new paid posts of which 30 came direct. the online copies are already available and post allowing paper editions will be there on Monday. This week's edition also contains the first advance warning notice of an impending change in subs rates.
