Remember to feed the wild birds

Jack feeds the birds every morning and just before dusk. When we knew the snow was coming their feed was doubled up and today they were feed adlib.We get quite a variety to the bird table. Unfortunately we cant help the barn owls as they only eat mice and voles.As the mice run under the snow they have to go hungry . Hopefully the snow will soon melt. It was heart breaking to find so many dead barn owls last year. We often see them skimming the hedgerows at dusk and they sit on the post up the drive.The other night I managed to catch one with my camera.Hopefully he will find some mice very soon.
