I thought that such an interesting looking bird must have been somewhere else. Thanks for the info.

Hi Tony,

this, or a very similar looking bird, was at the Round Pond, Ken Gardens yesterday afternoon.

Cheers,

Hi Bill

I know that this bird was present in Regent's until at least 1.30pm. I very much doubt there could be two knocking about unless they were from the same parents.
