Mallard duck landing in a slush filled pond

I sat and watched this duck take off, try to land on the slush covered pond, and then take off again and so on for about ten minutes. Eventually it gave up, landed in the water and tried to walk on the slush which also failed before it gave up and went out to the open water.
