Santa’s steam train

Yesterday we took a steam train to the North Pole. Little Owl was not much impressed by Santa until he gave her a present and best of all…an orange! My favourite bit was the whole carriage singing Christmas songs with a man with an accordion. Here are some of the volunteers who put on the day.

Yesterday we spotted a new sort of bird using our garden feeders. They looked a lot like chaffinches but were in fact bramblings. Bramblings migrate here for the winter from Scandinavia and Russia. There was quite a flock of them. We also got a good sighting of the sparrowhawk sweeping down over the garden.
