Snowfall – the perfect bird accessory

Posted on February 7, 2018


Living here by the coast in North Devon means that we rarely see snow, salty onshore winds see to that. The last time it snowed on the beach was way back in February 2009. (There are some photos in a blog entitled ‘Can you smell carrots’. Here >  )

Just a few miles up the road and nearly two thousand feet up into the sky, however, lies Exmoor – where it snows every year. Somewhere

Photos of the snowfall on 6th February coming soon, check back later at

In the meantime here’s a few tasters.

  1. ‘Kestrel on a stick.’ Not sure if she’s the same bird I was shooting in a previous blog:

But she is looking splendid (resting after an unsuccessful hunt) framed by this snowy Exmoor scene.

2. Robin ‘bob bob bobbin’.


Pretty pleased with these keepers.
