More snow and a moider!

A moider? Yes a moider – well more of a massacre.

Headed to the beach to check out the latest snow conditions.

Had to pick my way over the stream to start
Spot the birdie?  There are tonnes of lapwings down there sheltering at the moment, they are all slow and lethargic and don’t shift until you get really close – like this one
Cliffs still looking cool
Moider scene! I omitted the gory photos here but this was the scene of a massacre – at least a dozen dead birds which at first I thought was a case of being frozen to death. Then I notcied that some were decapitated and I dont know of any Siberian wind that rips birds head off.
Evidence! I found the tracks of the culprit but how the hell did a fox get onto the beach here?
Aha! The cunning git used the old smugglers path which is hard enough to climb in summer
He would have climbed down here to catch the little frozen birdies. Ah well it aint moider after all its just nature
Usual photo from Witches Point with added snow
Up onto the cliffs – and time to start the wading through drifts
Luckily the snow was pretty hardpacked by the wind so didn’t sink too deep
I’m on his trail!
Hmmm ok i’ll just jump the wall
Out onto the road – that way is home if I was in the car – and work wondered why I was worried about getting back?  I know it out here – when it snows it drifts and we get cut off. Took me ages to convince them
Um yeah and thats the other way out
And thats the road to the rest of the village – Its lucky I can run everywhere these days
