This Ring-necked Parakeet was in a tree near to the car park..
Red crested Pochard
I'm sure this is the Tufted-Duck - RC Pochard Cross I've seen at Bushy in the past..
Investigating a nest hole!!!! in December...
and this tree stump was attracting about 10 Parakeets all investigating the holes..
and as I walked around the pond.. a Cormorant was gazing over the water.
A little Egret.. don't see them over often at Bushy..
and as I was near to Claremont and was hungry I popped in for a fruity scone for lunch.. and it was the usual excellent standard.. but cafe was packed.. as was the car park which I couldn't get in so parked nearby and walked back.
Mt Ponders definitely approved of the scones - and agreed it was the usual high standard of Claremont scones... and quacks to the baker!!
and on the way back ... it rained again...... :)
