How do they manage?

A fair bit of the white stuff fell yesterday and it makes me wonder how these poor birds mange to survive it all. The regular gang of Long Tailed Tits didn't show all day, but here's a few that did.

The Pied Wagtail was having trouble moving around at some times, but managed to find some food.
An old roasting dish makes a good food holder for the ground feeders. Sighted under a small garden table to keep the worst of the weather off.

Starlings decided to tough it out in the open.

The Dunnock looked on, wondering where it all came from.

Meanwhile the Robin took over when the Blackbird had finished

This poor Blue Tit looked so vunerable

Facing the storm.

Well, today has been sunny, and a lot of snow has begun to melt; but the clouds are gathering at the moment, so perhaps more on the way.
