   Despite very little snow in this part of Aberystwyth we did not escape the biting cold. The meal worms I put out on the grassy embankment outside my front door really did the trick yesterday. Several Song Thrushes and a few Redwings, Stonechats, Meadow and Rock Pipits all took advantage. This Redwing was photographed through a window:
Other Redwings foraged with Lapwings on the harbour mud and on sea-weed covered rocks.   Early this morning Lapwings were even foraging on the tarmac and gravel roadway below my balcony:
Ringed Plovers looked for food nearby:
This Golden Plover was an unusual sight from the balcony:
A short walk took us to Spencer's sheds where Llinos had found these casualties of the weather:
and Jill found this Meadow Pipit:
