So Mallard are designed to swim, dabble and waddle......but how do they cope on ice?
First I get a foot carefully onto the ice....then
I push my body forward onto the ice.
Keeping my weight well distributed....
It's time to push up with the feet.
And then I'm up and walking but be careful it is slippery!
