There was a bit of a thaw today so I went out for a walk along the berm to enjoy the warmth. The warmth had also got some squirrels in the mood for a game of tag. Perhaps just a warm-up game before the serious business gets underway later in the winter. They better watch out though. as almost every winter I come across the remains of a critter (see below) that didn't make it when attempting to cross this open ground between the fence line and the berm.
