Chill

There was a chill wind blowing across the 'Bogwash' this morning and we had to take a little more care than usual while walking, due to the patches of ice.  A few stray drops of sleet managed to find our spectacles and annoyingly settled on them, but the sun shone on us.  The Coots were busy fighting on the water - it seems that's what they do best - scratching and clawing at each other while the Swans, Moorhens, Grebes and Ducks took no notice.  Round to the Straw's Bridge lake and things were a little more relaxed.
The Coots here were not fighting.  As usual, preening and feather maintenance were the order of the day between bread-bag excitements.
