Cupboard bare

I put the trap out lateish last night and woke up to a heavy frost. At the time of writing, 7.20am, the temperature is struggling to get above 0C, 32F, although that hasn't deterred two cock robins from having an energetic face-off over breadcrumbs we scattered yesterday on the lawn. The trap is completely empty, something which has only happened once before in four years, and the other time was on a snowy night in December. So I shall mark this with a small first: a blog post without a photo.

Mind you, the sky is clear and the sun is up, so we look set for a lovely day and probably a circular walk from a pub in the Dales. I hope you have something equally enjoyable in mind.
