A keen snapper has sent us this picture of ducks on a frozen pond at Shipley Country Park.

Dawn Parry, of Ilkeston, captured this wintery scene at Osbourne’s pond last month.

The pond is a key feature of the park, which is a prime spot for birdspotters wanting to view waterfowl.

Here we see a couple of swans among the many ducks which visit the pond.
