Field opposite is full of Greylag Geese, Not unusual, but the first time this winter.

Are they looking for an early return to Spitzbergen, or is there hard weather coming?

The Met Office says that UK temperatures are likely to be around the seasonal average for the next 30 days. That means it will be somewhat colder - in the South at any rate.

It's going to be colder as the week goes on - snow showers on Thursday.

I am hoping a long period of cold might kill off some slugs and snails. They ate better than me for the last couple of years.

There's talk of snow up north but then aren't things always bad up north. There are all sorts of Old Wives Tales re. birds and predicting the weather. I dare say if someone has the time and the inclination they could find such a tale re. these Greylags and no before you ask I'm not volunteering.

"There are all sorts of Old Wives Tales re. birds and predicting the weather. "

Are you suggesting that the documented cols weather movements of birds, even migration itslf, are old wives tales?
