Dabbling


The River Aire flowing through Saltaire's Roberts Park is just... only just... contained within its banks at the moment. This area is almost like a little beach in summer. You can see grasses at the edge of the channel where the river normally flows. There were lots of ducks (mallard) in this area of shallows. Perhaps the water is a little warmer here? Or maybe it suits their dabbling habit to be in a shallow area, out of the rushing currents.

  1. Wonderful light. Yes - it's getting a trifle damp round our way too!

  2. Hi Jenny .. love the way the wind and current makes the river surface have so many patterns - as Mike says .. wonderful light. We've had near flooding here .. but nothing as serious as you're getting up north ... cheers Hilary

  3. That water is really high! Maybe the ducks don't have to fight the current in the shallower areas?
