We are expecting a really cold spell later this week but these pictures come from last Thursday when it was already quite cold enough for me.
The confused ducks are trying to learn how to cope with walking on the frozen stream; slip sliding around and falling over.
I went for a walk across the fields and took a look at the Bullrushes, still looking fine, with only a few turning into cotton wool with the seeds flying off ready for spring.
Over at Ankerwycke farm, the farmer was clearing some waste ground with a chainsaw and a couple of fires.
It was a very fine morning, with wisps of wood smoke highlighting the beams of sunlight as they drifted through the trees.
