Yesterday I went in search of a roosting Tawny Owl in Bushy Park.... I dipped!
Today I headed off for Barnes (LWC)... very little about in terms of Waterfowl. But out on the Marsh were a pair of Peregrine Falcons just standing on the grass. Far too far away for a picture but lovely to see them nonetheless!
The twittering in the trees gave a clue to the small flock of Siskins going through. They are very clever at hiding so I was very lucky to get these shots through all the twiggy branches!
But walking back to the visitor centre for a cuppa, it was a pair of mute swans that were the star turn of the day. We stood there for some time whilst the happy couple dipped and bathed....
Apparently the Bittern was showing reasonably well, but it escaped my attention.
And, oh joy, the road over Barnes bridge is only one-way whilst essential maintenance is carried out so had to sit in a queue of traffic to get back on the usual route. Nice!
