Pit Pat Waddle Pat

The mallard ducks are always lurking around somewhere.  The creek that runs down to the Holland River near the train station always has some ducks hovering about.  Today I saw these duck prints coming away from a small hole in the ice – perhaps they were having a bit of a bathe – and waddling along upstream.  It looks like the duck’s foot might have been wet, and then the wet snow and print froze.  I took this photo at night, so you can see the shadow of the trees on the snow, created by the lights on the train platform.
