My grandson stayed overnight and this morning we had to collect new glasses. This, and some essential food shopping (including a doughnut - but don't tell J's Mum!) we came home.
Mid afternoon we popped over to Bushey Park - no Great Crested Grebes still but hundreds of people so "Fancy going over to Barnes (London Wetland Centre)?" says I. "Oh yes" says J, so off we trotted.
Not a great deal about (this was at 3.30); but met a couple of chaps I'd seen there before on many occasions and we agreed: not a great deal about!
Collection Birds - A Long-tailed Duck now having grown its tail again
The resident 3 cranes - strutting their stuff in the way that Cranes do!
A first (in terms of pictures) this year of a Peacock Butterfly
and the star today - this rather obliging Great Crested Grebe which we espied just as we'd decided to call it a day!
It Was Almost a Shame ....
