Even by leaving off work 10 mins late it was still light enough for me to nip down to the lake on my way home to see if the continuing hard frost had delivered us any surprises- the light is coming back! It hadn't (any surprises) but the majority of the lake was fairly well covered with about an inch or more of ice, it was obvious by the amount of debris on the top that several attempts to break it had failed. Only 2 pair of Mandarin were present, but a Little Owl in an 'often seen' tree was a nice sight. The Barn Owl was quartering Doom strip again this morning.
