Walking on water

Spot the odd one out!

This swan got angry with me. Not sure why. The ducks were having a great time surfing the icy lake and maybe he simply got fed up and decided I was an easy target.

Oh, this was from a few weeks ago. I've been a little busy recently...

Gorgeous shots. That swan was probably concerned about her weight, as she fell through the ice. And you saw!!

She was definitely pissed about something!

A few days before this some friends and I were watching the geese in the lake at Nottingham University. It had frozen over and nearly all the birds were standing around confused. One goose, however, had managed to break the ice and spent about 20 minutes swimming around making a hole in the ice larger so he could swim in it. As soon as he'd finished, he flew off to another part of the lake that was still free of ice.

Never quite understood his logic...
