London Wetland Centre.....

Richmond Park, Bushy Park or London Wetland Centre.  Driving up I was going to Richmond Park... but changed mind and headed off to Barnes.  Fairly quiet on the whole.

Heard several Cettis and saw a few Long-tailed Tits.  A Goldcrest entertained for a while - great little bird :D

The light was odd; it seemed bright but probably more glary.  The dark clouds at times didn't help with photography.  But... managed a few pics..

A couple of Great Crested Grebes about in their winter plumage.

Cormorants preened viewed from the Wildside Hide

A Grey Heron got in on the act..

a bit of Cormorant wing stretching..

which the Grey Heron copied.


Elswhere a Mute Swan hoovered up the greenery..

A collection bird dozed in the sun..(it came back)

Late flowering blooms shone in the sunshine

Decided to go over to Bushy Park... by the time I got there dark clouds threatened rain and the traffic was awful.  Time to call it a day.. and home I went!
