Looking across the Long Water to the Henry Moore enclosure, you can just see that the Egyptian Geese still have five young.
Much of the time they are kept under their mother's wings to shield them from the big gulls.
A pair of Mute Swans trying to make a nest in the reed bed near the Diana fountain were evicted by the local bully.
Another swan struck a dramatic attitude at the end of a preening session.
This picture, taken by Simon Worsfold, shows a Black Swan at Brent Reservoir, where it has been for some time. It looks very like the one that stayed in the park for eleven months, still sadly missed.
There is another solitary Black Swan in Beddington Reservoir, of which I don't have a picture.
A Pochard stared at the camera.
A Great Crested Grebe caught a fish near the Serpentine outflow.
This Cormorant fishing in one of the Italian Garden ponds had caught a perch, but had to discard a lot of unwanted vegetation swallowing it.
The Redwings on the Parade Ground were disturbed by leaf blowers and took to the trees.
A Pied Wagtail looked down from the kerb at the edge of the Serpentine before leaping to catch some tiny creature.
Two Carrion Crows were bathing in the Diana fountain in the Rose Garden.
(It has a stature of the goddess Diana on it, nothing to do with the princess.)
A Blue Tit waited impatiently for some Rose-Ringed Parakeets to stop hogging the feeder.
Only one Little Owl was visible, the one in the lime tree. The first time I passed it was crouching low in the hole to keep out of the rain, and this picture was taken at a second visit.
While I was shuffling around trying to get a picture the first time, I turned round and found that two Grey Herons had arrived and were looking hopeful. They get fed on this part of the Vista, and now assume that anyone standing there has brought food for them.
