A Mistle Thrush was singing its pleasant but boring song in a tree overlooking the Rose Garden.
On the ground below, a Robin came out of a rose bed to be fed.
A Blackbird in the Dell perched next to some pink leaf buds, a sign that it's not too long till winter loses its grip.
A Magpie in the Flower Walk was pecking at some crusty object, I think the desiccated corpse of a small rat.
One of the Nuthatches in the leaf yard was singing too. The other was looking around before coming down to take food from the fence.
A pair of Egyptian Geese were making a terrible racket honking and panting in a nearby tree. They do this treetop display all winter, not necessarily when looking for a nest site.
There was a very small Greylag Goose at the Dell restaurant, no larger than an Egyptian. It was holding its own with the larger geese and getting plenty of food from visitors.
Two female Shovellers were feeding together, swinging their heads from side to side while they shovelled with an oddly mechanical action, like an automatic sweeping device.
A Mallard drake launched himself down the little waterfall in the Dell.
The white Mallard was resting on the island with his mate and the extra drake who has attached himself to the pair. The three now seem to be inseparable.
A young Mute Swan was chasing another along the Serpentine. Since they are both very junior, this would have been just a bit of horseplay, not a territorial dispute.
Two Great Crested Grebes were also chasing each other, and this really was territorial. The loser flew for about 50 yards before coming down at a safe distance.
The female Little Owl near the Albert Memorial was in her usual place in the oak tree.
One of the owls near the Henry Moore sculpture came out of the hole, but only for a few seconds and I saw it from across the lake, so didn't get a picture.
