A week has gone already. It is a little bit warmer but a small scattering of snow lasted almost a week due to the low temperatures.
Yesterday John and I went to the allotment.  I have not been for months so I took a few photos.

There is still some snow by the pond

The bird feeders had fallen down and needed fixing back up.

The last of the Brussel Sprouts need pulling out and the ground made ready for new planting.

 The garlic planted back in the Autumn is coming through.
and we have plenty of leeks to put in a stew.

John also dug up the last of the parsnips

Before we went out we saw this little chap in the garden

At first I thought he was a sparrow but looking closer I noticed he has a much finer beak and is much sleeker. I have an idea what he might be but if you know please leave a comment. If you click on the photograph  you can get a better view.

Lucky you to have an allotment...we would love one.
Is the bird a dunnock?
