Whitby Harbour last Friday
Some of you may have noticed that I frequently visit the Town of Whitby on Lake Ontario. Last Friday was a bitterly cold day but since my husband and I had met some friends for lunch close by, we just had to check out the harbour.
Looking at the west side of the harbour entrance
The last time we'd visited the harbour, it was completely frozen. I was pretty sure it would still be as the temperature was way, WAY below freezing.
The rocks totally covered in layers of ice
Large sheets of floating ice
But to my surprise there were lots of places for ducks to swim and there were a few Common Goldeneyes, Red-breasted Mergansers, Lesser Scaups, Mallards and Trumpeter Swans swimming amongst the ice floes.
Male Common Goldeneye
It was interesting to watch the ducks as they were constantly dodging floes that were floating into each other.
