This goose looks less then impressed as it climbs out of the water and onto the ice Monday afternoon at Kincardine harbour. However, the geese are pleased that a bit of water is now accessible - it had been covered in ice up until last week. More ice will be disappearing this week, perhaps, with warmer temperatures expected mid-week. (Josh Howald photo)
