...........I am a bad Blogger! I have been trying to get another post up, but never find the time. I have been particularly busy these last few weeks, with sorting and doing all the things a Secretary of an organisation does! Hopefully now it will settle down a bit, but I'm not banking on it!
However, we have had some sunny days, so managed to take some photos, without losing the dog! Let off the lead he will do a runner over the park and far away. He just thinks its his garden, so why not?
Those two were taken while it was still above freezing most of the day even if we had very low temperatures (3 or 4C).
But it has got very cold at night as well now, and the daytime temperature barely rises above freezing. The lake has frozen and the ducks are restricted to a small pool in the middle.
The morning I took this the swans were trapped in a tiny area, and were having difficulty breaking the ice to get out. I was a bit concerned, but Mr.G later reported that they had appeared at the duck feeding station, so were OK. He took a photo this morning to show me. They have joined the ducks in the small pool still available. If that freezes there are going to be some chilly ducks on the ice!
