todays walk

well i did try and get to work i left at 0600,i made good time to oldham when the snow hit.it took another 1hour to get to stockport where the town was gridlocked after a hour of queuing and sliding around the well gritted roads(not) i gave up and headed home.
at for 10,during the 4 hours 4 inch had fallen the roads were bad(and still are)

so at midday i went for a short walk through stony royd along waterside into town then home via shaw lodge

meadow pipit 1 sheltering by a wall at the top of the street
grey wagtail 2 (1 lily lane,1 woolshops)
redwing 1 over the house
kestrel 1

Shocking weather for all of Yorks.
I reckon the majority of resident birds have never experienced it like this before. I bet they`re wondering what`s hit em.
