30 years ago this week

Here is the first of an occasional thread on the blog, where we travel back in time to see what the Benstead was up to in the past. This one's topical (if a little dull), it snowed a bit back then....

16/2/1979 Aylsham – back garden, Norfolk day after heavy snowfall
The freezer broke down so we were able to feed the birds during this harsh weather. Birds coming to a mixture of bread, cheese and black currants included; bullfinch (feeding on cultivated blackberry), black-headed gull, starlings, blackbird, pied wagtail, robin, chaffinch, rook and song thrush. The following day saw fieldfare in the garden too.
