Of snow and ice

Ice patterns on the car

I have just heard that there is ice in the sea today at Mumbles on the South Wales coast, where winters are normally comparatively mild.

Another unusual phenomenon this winter is the sighting near Zennor in Cornwall (one of my favourite places) of a Snowy Owl.
For more icy scenes, visit the virtual polar exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum.

Strangely, though, there are still swallows over-wintering in South Wales and Cornwall. They don't seem to be suffering any ill effects, by all accounts.
