A morning stroll round Thacka

It was snowing lightly when I set out but soon cleared as I made my way along the hawthorns by the railway. There was a lot about and a good mix too, unfortunatly the light was poor and so are the pics. The small bird is a Yellowhammer,  also a Heron , Common Gull , and Mistle Thrush.  other birds were, Goldfinch 20 or so, 1 Bullfinch  male, Brambling, Kestrel , Greenfinch, Fieldfare, Moorhen 2. On the bottom flood or sheet ice as it is there was a mixed flock of gulls, Common and Black-Headed.
    It was still very icy under foot and actually went down at one point, camera making contact with the ground via its lenshood first. fortunately no damage to either of us.
