So a very spur of the moment visit in glorious sunshine and it was so warm... I wished I'd had a t-shirt on rather than a jumper.
In the Boating Pond there were hardly any birds apart from the usual suspects., A pair of mute swans were nesting on the usual island.
A couple of mallards having a chat as they swan past..
and the usual chase by the males of the female!!
A jackdaw gazed out at the world from its lofty perch..
A hybrid mallard
This Canada Goose had a cosy nest..
A male Mandarin Duck
with an almost perfect reflection!!
Loads of Parakeets around.. I believe this is a youngster given the shortness of the tail and lack of beak colour.
and finally, a female Mandarin Duck
great impromptu day and very unexpected... :)
