It's not just humans who have trouble getting around in the snow and ice... spare a thought for these swans who got trapped in a frozen lake in Merseyside.
The RSPCA animal charity got diggers from a nearby site to help break the thick ice and free the birds. Unfortunately, one bird died but the others made a full recovery.
RSPCA officers were also called on to help this goose that got frozen to the ice on the River Teifi in Cardigan for the second time in two days.
Inspectors used their new flood rescue boat to crack through the ice and reach the bird, which was later given a clean bill of health by vets.
In Scotland, Hector the Great Dane dog had to be rescued after falling through ice on a pond in Edinburgh. Fire crews were called to rescue the hefty hound as it's dangerous work.
The good news is Hector's doing fine now. His owners did the right thing calling for help as at least two people have died in recent weeks while trying to rescue their dogs from icy water.
