It is another brilliant sunny day at Redmoss. The snow is sparkling like diamonds and the cold air freezes your lungs! Woke up to NO water today. Apparently it was minus 18C last night and the water has frozen in the well head. Will have to wait until it thaws which should not be very long as the sun has quite a bit of heat in it. We have done well as this is only the first time this winter.
Had a very pleasant surprise too. We have had a nocturnal visitor on the terrace after the bird seed. Any ideas? (the claws are a clue). Yup, it's a badger. We had the pleasure of their company last summer but then they left suddenly. It's nice to know they have returned. Mini weetabix and any home baking are preferred food and peanuts are a good standby. Badgers seem to have a sweet tooth.
