S'no Fun
We had some snow in January, which froze and hung around for a bit. An immature Herring Gull landed on my neighbour's shed roof and decided to have a bit of fun.

Needless to say, I wasn't expecting this to happen, just my first garden sighting of gulls for the year and wanted a picture to record the date. Rather pleased with the result!
