Continuing deep snow affecting many resident species in Scandinavia

Whilst 5,000 or more Bohemian Waxwings have recently flooded the towns and cities of southern Sweden, the deep snow which has been affecting the entire area of Scandinavia since 17 December, in places over 60cm deep, even in Helsinki (Finland, is having a seriously detrimental affect on some of the owl species and many have been found dead through starvation....and this comes on top of the 13th year in succession with no Lemmings and few small rodent prey (Lee Evans)
