At last a Song Thrush turned up in the rowan trees on Buck Hill, so these trees have now had all the common migrant thrushes in them.
There was a mild chattering noise from the next tree, which came from a few Redwings that were waiting for their turn with the berries.
A Blackbird reached down to take a berry. You can see that these are beginning to discolour and go soft. The birds usually prefer them in this state.
A party of Long-Tailed Tits was working its way from the bridge the west side of the Long Water. Although the birds fly fast, the flock as a whole moves at less than walking speed, so when you find one here you hurry up to the Vista and wait for them to arrive at the last tree before the gap. They always pause here before crossing the gap, and the tree is quite small and low, so there is usually an opportunity for a photograph. And here it is.
On the other side of the Vista, next to the Henry Moore sculpture, a Magpie had beaten a Jackdaw to a morsel of food. Jackdaws are quick, but Magpies are just as fast and considerably more ruthless, and usually win these contests.
A Pied Wagtail perched on the roof of one of the small boathouses and looked down the sunny side to see if any insects were visible. They have large, sharp eyes and will pounce on tiny bugs from a considerable distance.
The Teal was still in his usual place, skulking in the reeds, but he emerged for a moment.
A few feet away, a pair of Great Crested Grebes were fishing under the willow tree. One of them is already back in breeding plumage, and the one at the front of the picture is just growing the chestnut feather of its neck ruff, which are emerging through the white winter plumage.
A Greylag Goose was enjoying a vigorous wash on the Serpentine.
The Black Swan was having a quiet moment by himself, but came over when he saw me and took a digestive biscuit.
His on-off romance with the young Mute Swan seems to be going through an off phase. I haven't seen them together for a couple of days. She was on the other side of the lake demanding food from a rather alarmed tourist.
