It's been a cold few days here at St. Abb's Head with temperatures falling below zero for the last 5 nights in a row. As a result the Mire Loch has nearly completely frozen over, with most of our waterfowl concentrated into a small area of open water near the middle of the Loch. Today I spotted Mallard (pictured), Wigeon, Tufted Duck, and Coot. Lizy
