I've been over to Barnes (London Wetland Centre) and also to Painshill Park.
A flock of Goldfinch were feeding on the blossom... but wouldn't come out into the open for a photocall!
and, much to my surprise, the Goosanders are still about. About 16 in total in two groups. In this group of 8, there was only 1 male!
and, judging by the size of it, this was a Queen bee. I'd seen about 4 very large bees so I'm assuming they are the Queens looking for a home.
and the forecast... it's not going to last!
