Winter Feed For The Birds

So with the weather as it is, snow everywhere, frozen water, generally cold. It is difficult for the birds to find food and water under the snow. So I make a habit of cracking the ice on our pond each day so that they can drink and then put seed out for food. What do I get out of this; well, I get to see the colourful collection of feathers flying in and out to the food tables from the window. It is just a little support to ensure our countryside birds survive the bad weather. Below are a few images of the birds attending the winter table.
