A Little Grebe was fishing in the darkness under the bridge.

A Great Crested Grebe caught a fish at the east end of the Serpentine, under the gaze of a pair of Cormorants that weren't catching anything.

One of them flew off tofind a better place to fish.

A group of Tufted Ducks dived in a fountain in the Italian Garden to find tiny water creatures among the algae.

A Greylag Goose cruised over a carpet of dead leaves at the east end of the Serpentine.

Another was prospecting in the disintegrating raft, but only found the lid of a plastic cup.

A pair of Mute Swans preened in the Long Water. They are so bright in sunlight that the water appears completely black.

A flock of Long-Tailed Tits dashed around the pleached lime trees in the Rose Garden.

There was a Goldcrest in the bushes at the back of the Lido.

It was cold, and hungry small birds waited at the bridge to be fed. A Robin came out in the sunlight ...

... and a Blue Tit stayed in the shade.

When Carrion Crows want to be fed, they plonk themselves down in front of you and stare.

A Jay was impatient at being filmed before it was given a peanut.

The female Little Owl near the Henry Moore sculpture sat low in her hole in the lime tree.

The owl near the Albert Memorial gave a better view. Even if it is inevitably the same shot time and time again, you can't resist photographing this lovely bird.


  1. Who'd have thought a Little Grebe could look so spooky? Good shot in the dark.
