Startop's in the snow

I visited Startop' Wnd today and took the attached photos; the SNOW BUNTING was still there in its usual corner by the steps in the snow, the Robins by the hide were extremely tame, there were at least three Meadow Pipits on the wall in the NW corner. The Bittern was still in the reeds on Marsworth (which was totally frozen) but too far away for any pictures.

I managed a shot of the redhead Smew and also took a picture from the hide to show how much of the reservoir was frozen as well as a picture of two Mute Swans that took off and did a circuit over the canal and car park only to land again a short while later (Chris Hinton)
