On Wednesday morning my wife and I visited the RSPB Saltholme reserve - yesterday's image shows a very small part of it in all its frozen glory (thankyou for all the votes and kind words). The birds had a somewhat different experience of the extensive waterscape as it was mainly frozen.
Here we have a (male?) mute swan on the ice. No it's not a gravel or other man-made surface: I don't quite know why the texture was as it is seen here. The view is taken from the Wildlife Watchpoint looking out on the Northern Reedbed.
It was a wonderful morning!
