A winter wonderland

Decided to head north today but didn't bargain for the amount of 'white stuff' that was still lingering. Dunlop Semtex Pond, Machine Pond, Beaufort Ponds were all frozen with nothing but an odd gull to be seen. On to Bryn Bach Park where a small area of open water supported 100 Coot, 100 Mallard and a few Tufties, Mute Swan and Moorhen. Thanks to a steady flow of kind hearted valley people with their bags stale Hovis  I managed to secure some half decent shots of gulls. To my surprise one Black Headed Gull was carrying what appears to be a foreign ring. Will check origin in due course but in the meantime if anyone can help let me know. Happy new year.
