Today, many parts of Britain were suffering extreme transport difficulties due to heavy snow falls and ice. Over 5000 schools were closed. However, Glasgow was a pocket of relative normality but light conditions remained poor.

This morning, I continued my wildfowl theme with a visit to Queen’s Park to photograph the birds. This area was, in fact, a major battle site (Battle of Langside 1568) but is now put to more peaceful uses.

As the video clip shows, the park is covered by snow and the pond frozen over.

The pond is carefully managed to help the wildlife. There is a resident pair of Mute Swans which breed.
