Have spent a couple of days holed up in front of the fire. However made the occasional foray outside to get wood, top up the bird feeders and crunch around in the snow.
Yes we are getting through a prodigious amount of bird food. There is a flock of goldfinches which feed on both the peanut feeder and the niger (their favourite). Some of them have been landing on the (snow covered) road in front of the house, where they spend some time pecking on the ground. We cannot imagine what they're finding there to feed on at the moment. Possibly some fallen seed from your larch tree, unless they're picking up grit from the road. We also have tree sparrows on the feeders. Siskins have come out of the woodwork (or more likely the woods) and are hitting the niger as well.
When I went for a walk up behind the hedge (30 or 31/12/09) a woodcock went up. It was unmistakeable with it's long beak and speckled brown plumage. Whenever we've seen them in the garden it's been under snowy conditions like these. Also plenty of fieldfares around between Abernyte and Kinnaird.
Watch out for bramblings! They look like chaffinches but different. It's usually when the weather's really hard that they turn up under the bird feeders. Haven't seen any but they're likely to be about.
