Time was a bit limited so I spent an hour or so around the visitor centre at Attenborough Nature Reserve.
The water around the centre was one of the only areas on the whole reserve that wasn't frozen, so it was absolutely packed with ducks, most of which were taking advantage of the grain that was being thrown in to feed them.
Even normally shy species like Pochard and Tufted Ducks were showing as close as a couple of yards.
