It has remained below freezing for the past week in Glasgow, which I think is fairly unusual. I went to see how the swans in the park were doing:
A lot of the pond is now frozen solid. And you can see what the state of many of our pavements are like as well – packed snow and ice. I counted 13 swans, including the resident mother and four of her young. They and the ducks and moorhens were mostly all swimming in the unfrozen part of the pond:
You can just about see in the above photo that the swans were swimming amongst broken plates of ice. The swan stopping to have a drink is standing on the ice. It’s a bit difficult to see where the ice ends and open water begins.
We shall see what today brings. Stay warm, everyone!
