8'' of snow,-5 but still birds about

with the car stuck on a iced road,a nice snowy 10 mile walk today.salterhebble,elland gp,southowram and siddal.
it seemed very devoid of birds along the canal but 23 goosanders 2 treecreepers and dipper were good to see.
elland gp was frozen over with 34 lapwings on the lake,a small flock of redpolls flew over calling.
then onto southowram through the wood 2 tawny owls roosting high up,1 nuthatch and a coal tit
W lane leading to siddal was very quiet apart from 9 herring gulls and a great black backed gull heading west.
