Regent’s Park

Lesser Whitethroat: one in the hedge on the western side of the Old Golf & Tennis School, area 39.

Garden Warbler: two birds present, one in the same area as the above.

Bushy Park

Common Buzzard: one in the Brew House area.

Cuckoo: one was calling from in the Woodland Garden at 7.30am.

This Mallard Duck was trying to avoid the attention of a couple of drakes.



These two photos show the difference in the underwing patterns of Stock Dove and Feral Pigeon.



A pair of Mandarins soak up the early morning sun by a ditch near Upper Lodge Road.


I had to visit Hyde Park this morning and being a few minutes early I popped down to the Serpentine.
