The morning mist shrouded the view of Cormorants and Black-Headed Gulls on the fallen tree near Peter Pan.
But, seen from the other side, the Cormorants were looking glossy in the hazy sunshine.
A Great Spotted Woodpecker appeared in a tree at the top of Buck Hill.
There were Mistle Thrushes all over the hill, pulling up wireworms from the grass, perched in tall trees, and eating rowan berries.
The Blackbirds were on the other side of the Long Water eating berries in the holly and yew trees.
A few days ago I was wondering whether any birds ate horse chestnut seeds, which are said to be moderately toxic to all species. This Carrion Crow seemed to think they were edible, and was busily pecking one open.
The pigeon-killing Lesser Black-Backed Gull, in his usual place on the Dell restaurant roof, was accompanied by the young gull that seems to be the offspring of him and his mate. As usual, he was taking no notice of it whatever.
A Black-Headed Gull was washing in the Serpentine.
Another was being knocked off its perch by a Moorhen, which had walked along the chains between four posts for the pleasure of evicting it.
The young Grey Heron from the Dell restaurant had left its usual place and was trying its luck on the shore near the Diana fountain, where people often come to feed the waterfowl.
The young Mute Swans from the east end of the Serpentine, now hulking teenagers, tend to stick to the raft where they were hatched. The plants still haven't grown back after their parents ripped them up.
There was a large swarm of ladybirds all around the Italian Garden. They hibernate in the public lavatory next to the gate, and it looked as if they were having a final feed before settling down for the winter. Sadly, they all seemed to be the invasive Harlequin species.
