Along the summer walk on the Wildside a young Little Grebe was enjoying a splash about in the water...
The morning was dull, grey and drizzley!! so it was great to see the wonderful colour of recently planted wild flowers - these to be found in the (soon to be opened to the public) new Rain Garden. At the moment there's a high (builders') barrier around the area, so trying to poke the camera lens through this was quite a challenge!
This Bee made several abortive attempts to land on the poppy; needless to say its own weight kept bearing the poppy down but it finally managed to hang on for a bit!
And today I went over to Bushy Park - well it's September and the rut is in its first stages. Not that much activity today but this venerable oldie was making his prescence felt (and heard).
I shall be going regularly over the next few weeks and hopefully will see more action before too long!
