Twas the week before Christmas

What a busy week it was, a real mixture of jobs needed doing before we took a day off for Christmas.
Drivers eye view of timber being unloaded.

Timber needed gathering from small stacks into one large one so that it is ready for collection by a lorry.
There were also a few log orders to cut and deliver.

There was also a bit of felling to do, the only down side to this job is getting a load of snow down your neck as the tree falls and deposits its accumulations.

Saw my first Woodcock of the season on the Edge today, have usually seen quite a few by now, found a dead Wren on Christmas day another victim of the cold weather. Hopefully this partial thaw that has taken place today will offer a chance for wildlife to bulid up fat reserves before the next really cold snap. Please remember to put food out, particularly for the birds. Apples and sultanas are great scattered on the ground for Thrushes, as are porridge oats. Peanuts and seed in feeders will cater for Tits, Finches, Woodpeckers and Nuthatches.
