via The Big Wobble: Incredible photo of bird frozen alive under the water in Holland as 100’s of thousands of dead creatures reported in aftermath of “The Beast Of The East”

An incredible photo has surfaced showing a kingfisher bird frozen solid mid-dive into a Dutch canal.
On inspection of the picture, it is obvious the bird froze solid at the split-second it dived into the water for a fish.
The unfortunate bird froze during the big freeze “The Beast Of The East” which plunged Europe into Arctic conditions.
Christoph van Ingen, who spotted the kingfisher in the town of Oostzaan, just north of Amsterdam, said he believed it might have dived into the canal to catch fish as the water was turning solid and been unable to escape.
Around a 100 people died across Ireland, the UK and Europe during the cold snap.
