The young Egyptian Geese on the Round Pond were having a hard time getting out. The new kerb has been unevenly laid (laser levelling can't manage something that the ancient Egyptians did accurately with a leather hose full of water) and in this place it was five inches above the water. The stronger ones managed to jump clean out, and the others got up with a bit of a scramble.
But the smallest one was left behind. Luckily it had the good sense to swim to one of the overflow grilles, where it could walk out, and soon rejoined the family.
The Scaup was in his usual place on the north side the Serpentine, but I've published too many pictures of him recently. The Goldeneye was also visible, right at the east end of the Serpentine.
She is not as obliging as the Scaup, and obstinately remained 50 yards from the shore.
Just up the lake, a young Herring Gull was checking a plastic bag to see if it contained anything edible.
The flock of Pied Wagtails was still running around on the south shore. Although they mostly hunt on the ground, they can find insects in trees too.
But here they can't equal the specialists, such as this Treecreeper near the Physical Energy statue ...
... or this Blue Tit. I gave it a pine nut, which it held down on the branch with its strong little feet while it pecked at it.
Melissa the Carrion Crow was having a jacuzzi in the marble fountain in the Italian Garden (you would never know it is marble, as it is thickly encrusted with algae).
When she was completely saturated, she flapped wetly up to a branch and shook herself like a dog.
The Mute Swans on the island in the Long Water were busily throwing around the reeds that had been laid for them. Although at one point both of them stood up, I couldn't see their eggs to count them. There should now be more than the two seen yesterday morning.
The male Little Owl didn't feel like a public appearance today, but occasionally he put his head above the edge of his hole and gave the assembled photographers an intense yellow stare.
