24th February

I had a few days off last week, so today was a case of checking up on a few of my projects that had were underway before I went on leave.This gave me the chance to grab a few photos of some of the parks more vulnerable species on what was a glorious day to be out in the parks.

This is phase 2, Hedge  Laying on Dukes Head Passage. Phase 1 was opening up an untidy area at the western end. This corridor into the park has been slightly neglected in recent years. My aim is to turn it into a green lane, that will attract a wider range of bio-diversity.

It was possibly scared of this nearby Great Crested Grebe, that in turn was worried by another G C Grebe on the other side of the pond.

The pair of Great crested Grebes in Regent’s Park have to be careful when they leave their nest as Coots are also on the lookout for nest sites.
