A few photographs

Good morning everyone. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr it's cold out there. We still have compacted snow, frozen solid on the road outside!
Anyhow, tomorrow I am off to Macclesfield for a crafting day with friends so I am leaving you with a few photographs to peruse. I went to Attenborough Nature reserve on Sunday 28th November and these are just a few of the pics I took.
If you've never been, it's well worth a visit if you live close enough. I am lucky, it's only about 8 miles from me :o)

The poor birds were slipping and sliding all over the place!

Imagine walking barefoot on that snow brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Does anyone know what kind of goose this is? It's a winter visitor but I don't know
where from!

I hope you all manage to keep warm
Jackie xx

Morning Jackie - it's cold, crisp and sunny here in North Wales. Your photos are beautiful - I'm not sure the birds were too happy with the ice :)) Could it be a Canadian Goose?? Only guessing.

Take care, Deborah x
