It was a misty day, and you could hardly see across the lake.
So it was definitely a day to photograph things at close quarters, such as this Black-Headed Gull.
Another gull eyed a Cormorant with mild interest as it struggled to keep its balance on a chain.
A young Herring Gull was diving to try to bring up some object from the bottom of the lake that it could play with.
Another one, in the Diana fountain enclosure, had found a completely new toy, a bit of turf left over from the recent repairs to the grass.
After it had played with it for a while, its beak was full of earth, so it went over to the rapids to rinse it out.
A Grey Heron was back in last year's nest on the island.
There were few people in the park except at the funfair, so the small birds had come out of the bushes. This Chaffinch was in the Rose Garden ...
... where there was also a Dunnock looking for bugs in a flower bed.
A Wren was doing the same in a shrubbery next to the bridge.
There was still enough fallen rowan fruit on Buck Hill to attract a Song Thrush ...
... and several Blackbirds.
In the oak tree near the Albert Memorial, the female Little Owl was looking out of the hole. Even allowing for the fact that she had fluffed up her feathers against the morning chill, she is very large for a Little Owl and dwarfs her mate.
