January freeze finally hits Kent

England is officially gripped by the coldest weather spell in 25 years. Here's a few pictures taken in the garden today just for the record. Admittedly, we only have a fraction of the snow thats shut down most of the country in the last few days. Pictured above is our deeply frozen garden pond with about an inch of snow surrounding it. Picture taken at sunset today.

Redwings always shy and difficult to approach are entering gardens now. This one is rummaging underneath the Blackthorn bushes where the snow can't lay (yet!).

Blue Tits have taken an interest in the apple slices put out for the Thrushes

The 3 Red-legged Partridges remain close to the garden for much of the day feeding on corn I've put out for the Yellowhammers (below).

Like your new banner but it's not as good as mine - I can put you in touch with a fantastic graphic designer if you want!
