I was in need of exercise today having been fairly unavoidably sedentary over the last day or so. Consequently after having done some shopping and met a friend for coffee this morning followed by stopping in briefly at home for a quick sandwich, I headed off for Bushey Park for fresh air and a stretch of the legs. Dull day by the time I got there, and I walked around the Woodland Gardens today, ending up by the Boating Lake just before coming home.
My first sighting was of two Song Thrushes and immediately after by two Kestrels; next observations was a Great Spotted Woodpecker and I heard a Nuthatch and a Wren. This in addition to the normal suspects found in the park.
And... as my legs won't function without a camera over my shoulder....
