After a heavy frost last night a large part of the lake was frozen. I do feel sorry for the birds when it freezes over but the gulls seemed quite happy standing on the ice and the fish must get some respite.

A female kingfisher was very active on the lake and, although the light was poor, I tried to capture her in flight (with limited success).

One swan was again being very aggressive and assaulted another one.
Common assault on the lake – ouch
There was a dipper on the River Frome but it seemed very reluctant to try its chances at feeding below the water in the fast flowing river.
