The conditions are now perfect for cross country skiing and trip in nordmarka gave a good work out although with my poor technique I am aching in areas where one is not supposed to have aches. Birds though were not to be seen with just a few Crossbills the only thing of interest. A check of the feeders in Maridalen though revealed a few Crested Tits which are not normally seen here (being a bird of the deeper forest) and is maybe a result of the heavy snowfall making it difficult to find natural food. Also a Green Woodpecker was a new bird for the year.

Near the house today a flock of 40 Waxwings was a welcome sight and although I didn't see them feeding I am assuming they have found an apple tree that still has some fruit.
