A second-winter Great Black-Backed Gull was perched on a post near Peter Pan, dwarfing the Black-Headed Gull on the next post. This is the first time we have seen this bird, as the young one seen in previous years is now nearly grown up.
A Black-Headed Gull was showing no respect for Edward Jenner, the inventor of vaccination against smallpox, who is honoured with a statue in the Italian Garden.
Roman statues used to have a little bronze umbrella called a meniscus attached to the top of the head. This would have looked ridiculous to us, but they were used to it and it kept bird droppings off -- a serious matter for Roman statues, which were painted and couldn't be scrubbed clean.
The Black Swan and his girlfriend were together at the Lido. There were no other swans near, and they were taking advantage of the peaceful moment to do a bit of preening.
This is Blondie the Egyptian Goose with her mate. She is still just 50 yards from the place in the reeds where she first saw the light of day. She went to the Round Pond once, didn't like it and came home.
The Teal has again changed a lot since he was last seen two days ago. As well as the developing adult colours on his head, he has more black and white vermiculated plumage on his sides.
This is one of the Moorhens hatched in the Italian Garden in spring, and still there with the rest of the family. It is very nearly in its full colours, though still a little browner than an adult, and only a hint of duskiness remains in its bill and feet.
A Cormorant was looking for fish in the wire baskets near the bridge.
A Grey Heron was scratching its ear on a tree beside the Long Water.
The shore near the Dell restaurant was crowded with people visiting the funfair, but two Pied Wagtails were ignoring them and running up and down the shore. They are shy when stared at, but no one noticed them.
The berries on the rowan trees on Buck Hill are getting scanty after visits from many kinds of birds. Here is a Starling finishing off a bunch.
