On 28 December, to Corversbos and Gooilust nature reserves. Lots of snow had fallen, as this Corversbos photo shows.
Scores of chaffinches in trees closer to Gooilust.
At some spots in Gooilust, the snow had melted.
At other spots, water had frozen, making footpaths slippery.
Most ditches were still frozen.
As we walked back from Gooilust to Corversbos, the chaffinches were still there. We had no telephoto lens to photograph the finches, so here you can see just this photo of their trees.
