A Walk on the White Side

It did seem such a good idea at the time when Jean Bennett and I set off yesterday late afternoon with scope,bins,hot chocolate ,torches and loads of layers to Holburn Moss Pond.The intention was to see what ducks were on the pond then wait until dark to see if any Pink Footed Geese came in to roost.
It should have dawned on us after days of snow and ice,but it didn't-the pond was totally frozen!Not a duck in sight-in fact nothing in sight at all!The tally for the evening's expedition apart from the pleasure and freedom of being in a white wilderness in the early evening,was a couple of pheasant,2  Carrion Crows and a lone Yellow Hammer.
The hot chocolate and biscuits were excellent though!
