There are Jackdaws in all parts of the park now. A week ago Des McKenzie counted 11, but I think there must be more now. These were in a tree near the Physical Energy statue.
There have been two sightings of a Jackdaw in St James's Park too, so they are continuing their spread. I think their original centre before they reentered the park was somewhere in Bayswater, but I don't know the exact place.
There were at least a dozen Pied Wagtails running around on the grass on the south side of the Serpentine, calling to each other and flying up into the trees when disturbed. They have been hunting in this area for several days.
This Song Thrush obligingly posed for a picture beside the Rima relief.
As the weather warms up the lake has become full of disgusting brownish algae, not the usual green kind we see. At Peter Pan a Mandarin was pecking at them without enthusiasm, and soon gave up.
At the Lido, a Lesser Black-Backed Gull had found something more nutritious, a rather decayed carp.
Nearby, a pair of Herring Gulls seemed fond of each other.
They can indulge themselves, because there is a breeding colony of them less than a mile away, near Paddington Station. That is why Herring Gulls outnumber Lesser Black-Backs so greatly in this area.
Two Feral Pigeons were fighting fiercely on the rafters in one of the small boathouses. There is usually a nest here in the spring, but the pair seem to want keep the space for themselves.
The male Tawny Owl had not emerged when I had to go home early. But the male Little Owl peered out of his nest hole for a couple of seconds.
