The young Reed Warblers are now difficult to tell from adults, but have a slight orange tinge to their brown backs.
Also, their plumage is much neater, as the parents are looking tatty after nesting. Both sexes incubate the eggs.
The holly tree near Peter Pan was full of Starlings making such a racket that passers by were staring at the tree wondering what was going on. Nothing in particular was -- they just like this tree.
One of the Little owlets near the Albert Memorial was calling from the top of a horse chestnut.
They are beginning to look like adults, with white spots on their head. It won't be long before their parents throw them out of fend for themselves, as has already happened to the owls in the leaf yard ...
... where the father was back on his favourite branch.
The mass of boats on the Serpentine on a busy Sunday had driven a lot of Egyptian Geese on to the Long Water, where they were occupying the posts near Peter Pan.
Almost all the Canada and Greylag Geese have fully regrown their flight feathers, and many of them were flying around getting used to their new set.
This is the brother of the dark Mallard drake I photographed yesterday, almost identical except for having more white on his front. Both have a white streak behind each eye.
A female Mallard was taking it easy in the willow tree near the bridge.

A honey bee was busy in the marigolds in the wildflower patch behind the Lido.
Red squirrels are seldom seen in the park, and even less often seen texting.
