snail graveyard

Despite having many snails in the summer I have seen very few thrushes on the lane so it was a surprise to come across this anvil stone this week. I have seen no live snails (only shells - snails usually overwinter as eggs) over the autumn and winter so maybe a bird was disappointed at the outcome.

Another bird first on the feeders this week - marsh tits. The species list is gradually enlarging.
