Friday 23 January


Still freezing

The resident Swans are still trying to remove the off comer swans, the ice is making it difficult for them to get about, they mean business though.

 They are determined to see it off

 They are beautiful when they are angry

Even their own youngster has been given the warning signs

Still freezing and we have one of the ducks stuck on the ice

The Rangers have brought the small boat out to try and rescue it - the boat was leaking when it was in the water so rescue attempt abandoned.

Tuesday 20 Jaunary

Freezing again

 Snowdrop - Galanthus nivalis they seem to thrive isn't nature wonderful

 Seagulls on the ice

Swan walking on the ice

 The dark new juvenile swan

 Poor Micky stuck on the ice - he and another we call Griff were dumped on the lodge a while ago - they have been pets and then lost their cuteness, why do people keep doing this buying tiny adorable, fluffy animals and then dumped them when they grow.
