First in the water

First in the water (image : Brian F Kirkham)

While the rest were going about their morning routine

this brave soul decided to take the plunge

into the northern waters fed by the Mersey and Medlock

Water, skiddy in places, where jack frost had turned it to ice

but with all those feathers, he was well waterproofed

and ready for his breakfast passing under the waterline
