The Great Crested Grebes which I photographed yesterday vainly trying to make a nest in choppy waves have actually succeeded now that the wind has dropped, and have built the usual hastily constructed mess just strong enough to stand on.
They were mating, but this was impossible to photograph as there was just one viewpoint through the branches.
We've had pictures of Coot fights before, but this odd-looking picture shows a Coot winning its fight by submerging its opponent.
A second afterwards, the loser surfaced and ran away.
A Moorhen was poking carefully at a leaf in the little pool at the top of the Dell waterfall. Closer inspection shows that it was picking little yellow grubs off it.
A pair of Mandarins turned up at Peter Pan when someone was feeding the ducks.
The others remained invisible in the bushes.
There was a gull feeding frenzy for chunks of bread on the Serpentine.
The Kingfisher was back on his favourite branch in the dead willow next to the Italian Garden.
A Long-Tailed Tit perched for a moment on the peculiar winged elm tree which is next to the willow, and equally dead.
It's not clear why these trees died, but it may have been damage to the roots when people were working on the place where the borehole feeds water into the Long Water.
All the Redwings were on the Parade Ground feeding under the trees and on the new turf in front of them.
There was also a Pied Wagtail.
A Goldcrest was singing in a tree near the Long Water, and made a brief appearance.
A Nuthatch was also singing in the leaf yard, and came down to take food from the railings.
The female Little Owl near the Albert Memorial was sunning herself.
And the one near the Henry Moore sculpture was obstinately staying on the shaded side of the branch.
