There is a third brood of Mandarins. The mother and five ducklings appeared at the Vista, and then on the Serpentine just beyond the bridge.
The family met the Mallard with two ducklings. The parents left each other in peace, but one of the Mallard ducklings started pushing the little Mandarins around.
There is a second Great Crested Grebe nest on the Long Water, just south of Peter Pan and on the same side of the lake. It can only be seen from the other side, by standing next to Rudolf Steiner's bench.
The single grebe chick on the Serpentine was completely unworried by a near miss from a pedalo. It has grown up with these big blue clanking things and they are just part of the scenery.
The young Grey Heron from the lower nest on the island appeared on the shore below.
Shortly after I took this picture it was attacked by one of the parents from the other nest, and flew off.
The very aggressive male Mute Swan on the Serpentine near the bridge attacked another for no apparent reason. The victim escaped by swimming under water for several yards.
The Black Swan was out of sight somewhere, though he had been seen earlier this morning.
The eldest of the Canada goslings in the mixed brood is now looking very adult. Behind it are, from left to right, a younger Canada, one of the parents, and one of the adopted Greylags, whose species is now unmistakable.
A Coot was trying to feed bits of banana peel to its chicks. They didn't like it.
This young Starling had scavenged a piece of lettuce from a table at the Dell restaurant. This too was rejected. I have noticed that birds don't like salad dressing.
This is how to feed a Rose-Ringed Parakeet without getting bitten.
A family of Long-Tailed Tits flew across the west side of the Vista. Here is one of the young ones.
Only one Little Owl was visible in the chestnut tree, the female.
