Finally the snow!

Local patch: today was finally snowing, for the first time in the season. A quite strong wind was blowing from north-east. Due to the low temperatures (-3 to 1 degrees) some birds came to the feeders: Great Tits feeding on sunflower seeds and on fatballs, House Sparrows in flocks at the bird table and on fatballs, a single Robin feeding on the snow, some Blackbirds around. Plus a Sparrowhawk patrolling the gardens in flight.
Here are some photos taken by me:
