British Garden Birds in Snow – a video

The first minute of this video is of blackbirds in snow, then there is a cheeky chaffinch, a robin, a blue tit and sparrows. 

I apologise this video isn’t a brilliant video, but I’ll get better with practice.

The sound of my boots on snow frightened the birds away so this had to be videod from inside the house through glass windows, but it shows garden birds behaving naturally.

It’s really difficult to video birds – they only stay still for a second then fly away!

The last part of the video is of sparrows, chaffinches and blackbirds gathered near the frozen garden pond, having a snow bath and getting a drink of water from the edge of the pond.  They seem to be enjoying themselves, but they can’t be.
