A Return to Moses Gate

As I hadn't been to Moses Gate Country Park in Little Lever, Bolton for quite some time, I decided to call in on the way back from Elton Reservoir today.  The light was failing fast but I still managed to get a few shots.

'Time to Reflect' - this smart-looking winter plumaged Black-headed Gull was giving an almost perfect reflection on what I assume was ice. I wasn't sure which way up it should be!

 The 'Old Man of Moses Gate', a hunched Grey Heron, was there in his usual place.

It was nice to see a group of at least six Pochard over-wintering on the wildlife pool.  Here's one of the drakes.

And here's a redhead Goosander, probably a female, to finish off a rather gloomy set of shots.
