And one tiny fieldfare took his search to the garden of Brian and Margaret Holland, in Ipswich.

Mr Holland said: “Margaret as usual cannot miss an opportunity so has been taking a few shot from our conservatory with doors wide open and yes, she froze, but got these images. They show how birds cope in the snow with a little help from people.”

Realising that the tiny creature would be struggling for food, the couple helped him out.

“All we did was to place a few apples on the lawn in our tiny garden.”
