A walk in the park

On a cold, damp January day it is always worth a walk in the park, in my case East Park in Hull.
It is the best place I know to see goosanders (common merganser) with up to 30 individuals overwintering here every year. And if you get fed up with the cold and rain there is always the cafe!
