The tiny Moorhen chicks on the Italian Garden pond can run over the surface of the algae, but when they stop they start to sink in.
The Mandarin family at the Vista are down to three ducklings. Their mother was looking after them attentively ...
... while Death sailed elegantly overhead.
In the Italian Garden, a gnat was about to meet its doom at the hands of a Blue-Tailed Damselfly.
It's becoming increasingly plain that the three smallest goslings of the combined Canada Goose family are Greylags. They are in a row at the back of this picture. Note their greyish-brown bills and legs, in contrast to the black ones of the two young Canadas at the front.
The Black Swan was near the Diana fountain, preening his splendid new ruffles.
This rabbit under the Henry Moore arch is not recollecting an acutely embarrassing experience. It's just grooming its face.
There was one young Grey Heron in each of the nests on the island -- this is the eastern one where two young were hatched. Hoarse cries came from the tree on the right, where a Carrion Crow was annoying the other one, probably the one seen flying in yesterday's photograph.
At the Dell restaurant, a Feral Pigeon had found a wonderful abundance of leftovers. After walking round the table and inspecting the salad, it settled on chips (as you would), and ate quite a lot of them before a waitress took the plates away.
A Jay in the leaf yard gave me an appraising look, expecting a peanut, which it got.
The male Little Owl came out to the front of his chestnut tree.
One of the owlets was in the shade of the other tree.
Update: Mike Meilack saw and photographed two Common Sandpipers on the dead willow tree in the Long Water next to the Italian Garden.
