Waterfowl in Winter

Waterfowl in Winter at Rouken Glen, Glasgow

 This evening, I am presenting a small portfolio of images taken over the past 48 hours around south Glasgow which illustrate the current winter spell which is likely to be prolonged with more snow on its way.

Above image shows a small bank of swans and other small birds on a semi-frozen lake at Rouken Glen park.

Below is a waterfall located in the same park.

 Here is the part-frozen lake at Rouken Glen. Very soft ice and certainly not safe to walk on.

 Here is a view from Queens Park of a snowman enjoying a vista of a snow covered Glasgow. Not far from this site was fought the Battle of Langside in 1568 between forces of Mary Queen of Scots and the Regent Moray. The latter prevailed.
