More on Ice Pancakes from the Met Office here

“Ice pancakes are a phenomenon where discs of ice anywhere from 20 – 200 cm wide are formed creating a unique spectacle.

Ice pancakes are a relatively rare phenomenon that tend to occur in very cold oceans and lakes. They are most frequently seen in the Baltic Sea and around Antarctica but also form relatively frequently on the Great Lakes of the United States and Canada.”

Also seen at Banchory earlier in the month

Something I have always loved about the weather is its ability to throw up so many different spectacular sights.
