Snow is rare in winter in Guernsey. The ever present influence of the Gulf Stream usually ensures that temperatures never drop low enough for such weather...but last night was an exception. Strong south-easterly winds blowing off the nearby Continent brought a light dusting of snow. Catherine and I were out an hour before light to walk the Common and enjoy the rare treat!
As soon as there was light I visited the nearby beaches looking for gulls...and there were plenty. However...the snow made it almost impossible to read rings. I'll have to wait until later in the day to try to get some records.
