A few sunny spells had brought the Little Owl to the front of its hole in the oak tree, where several people were photographing it. It soon lost interest in this and gazed around.
Only one Little Owl has been seen so far. There was a pair here last year, and the other may well turn up.
The male Tawny Owl was out all day, guarding his mate and their nest.
The patch of leafmould under the plane trees on the opposite side of the path is regularly attracting Redwings.
It is also much visited by Blackbirds. Clearly there are plenty of insects and worms here. The gardeners are now spreading leafmould under the frail old sweet chestnut trees which were planted in 1690 when Kensington Gardens was laid out as a palace garden. These patches may also attract thrushes of various kinds.
A Dunnock was feeling quite secure among the beech leaves under the hedge at Kensington Palace, because there was a railing between it and me.
The Scaup was still on the Round Pond.
The Maned Goose seems to have gone. Probably it has been captured -- easy, as it is very tame -- and taken back to whichever park it escaped from.
There were six Jackdaws in their usual place at the northwest corner of the Round Pond. They have all worked out that if they stand on a bench, or the stake supporting a young tree, people will throw food directly under this object so they can jump down and grab it. The gulls can't swoop down on the food because the obstacle gets in the way of their long wings, and they have to land. The Jackdaw can deal with Black-Headed Gulls when they are on the ground.
This gull on the Serpentine had found a large chunk of bread and was having some difficulty in swallowing it. It managed eventually.
The young Grey Wagtail was running along the edge at the Lido again.
This pair of Great Crested Grebes from the north end of the Long Water was having a territorial dispute with the next pair down the lake. The frontier is the line of posts at Peter Pan.
