Tough Times On The River

An entry for the Challenge Group 112 Pictures in 2012 No.78 ~ Hard or Tough.

 

Latin Name: Cygnus olor

 

Life is not always plain sailing when the river freezes over!

 

This is the river at the bottom of our garden and one of our regular visitors is making his way to the area underneath a bird feeder we have fixed into our riverside walkway so that it overhangs the river and the "overspill" from the sparrows, tits and finches feeding above falls into the river which the ducks and swans forage from the river bed or sit underneath and wait to catch it as it falls. With the river frozen it just rests on the ice ready to be picked up.
