A Cormorant on the Long Water caught a fair-sized pike.
The fish put up quite a struggle, during which another Cormorant tried to grab it.
But in the end it was swallowed. It was only the third pike I've seen in the lake.
David Element saw a Northern Gannet flying over Kensington Gardens, and got this picture.
It was a juvenile, and clearly lost. This is only the second recorded sighting of a gannet in Kensington Gardens, the first having been in 1952.
Otherwise it was business as usual on a fine sunny day. The Little Owls near the leaf yard were calling to each other, but only one was visible, the female in the nest tree.
The Nuthatches, bribed with peanuts, were giving a good show in the leaf yard.
A Coal Tit also flew down.
Later it came to take food from my hand, the first time that this particular bird has taken the plunge. I hope I can feed it every day to help it through the winter.
A flight of Long-Tailed Tits went over near the Italian Garden, and paused in a hawthorn tree.
Some Blue Tits were accompanying them.
A Carrion Crow on Buck Hill was rummaging in the dead leaves and bringing up insects.
A Jackdaw was searching in the roots of an old chestnut tree.
This is the orphaned young Mute Swan that was looked after by the sadly missed Black Swan. It's still quite small, which probably means that it's female, but is in good order and was holding its own among a group of adults.
A Shoveller drake at the Vista was looking very fine in the sunshine.
