Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 11th January, 2009)
On Thin Ice

What is the point of posting, day after day, photos of wildlife which could be from anywhere? This is a site about Wigan. Let's have photos of Wigan, not of boring ducks!
Excuse me ducky have you seen a fish swimming by I am surer I seen one have? You my duck
Cheer up Michael, its good to have a bit of variety, although I took a pic of a duck the other day. ;)
It's a great photo from a fellow Wiganer in the borough.
Maybe Michael would like a refund of his membership fee Brian? :)
Let's see some of your wonderful pictures then, Michael...
Is that a duck?.
I agree to a large extent with Michael. The subject should be changed, preferably daily. All those you took of the Wigan Xmas lights took the biscuit.
*Ducks for cover
I've typed a reply to Ernest three times and deleted it before clicking "Submit"
I really can't be arsed.
Amazed that some of you seem to get off on pictures of wildlife. Whatever floats your boat, but, personally, I'm more interested in Wigan. That's why I visit this site. I thought that was its central purpose.
It's not primarily a showcase for amateur photographers who think they're Lord Snowdon, or Patrick Lichfield or somebody...
BORING DUCK???...... where???
For your information this is a Canada Goose. And perhaps we should be proud of the wildlife we have here in Wigan. Perhaps it would appeal more to Michael with a pellet in its head and left for dead????
I like it.
Eight wildlife photos over the last 4 months.
That's nowhere near enough! Ducks for the next month folks! :-)
I was brought up in the environs of Wigan - there was pollution everywhere, when we brought our narrow boat along the canal, moored up near where I used to play, you cannot imagine how happy I felt to see a swan's nest and to see swallows flying. The bird pics are great, and you should count yourself that the birds are there, not drowned puppies that I used to see - and smell.
As Basil Fawlty said, "If you don't like duck... tough luck".
I marvel both at the quality of the photos on this site and the variety of shots you show on Photo-of-the-day. If they are not to your taste then I suggest you don't look at them. Is that too simple a solution?
keep up the good work dave.i really enjoy looking at the varied wildlife we are lucky to have in wigan.always outstanding quality as well.
Thanks for the support folks :)
