Not Dancing on Ice.

During a recent local park visit there was very little unfrozen water so the hardy wildlife was to be found walking on the water. So a few shots of Mrs Mallard showing me her dainty steps across the rink.

For more pictures of 'Ice Walkers' check out my "Early Birder" blog.

More images have been posted on my Early Birder blog soon.  FAB
