Bushy Park.. dodging the showers

Popped up to Bushy Park today as the weather forecast looked good... and forecasts can be wrong.. so didn't stay too long.

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...... :)
