The sunshine brought many small birds out of the bushes., including a Nuthatch which posed obligingly on a twig.
A Blue Tit was looking for insects in a bay tree.
A Coal Tit was hanging upside down in a place where even a Blue Tit might have found it hard to get a toehold.
And a Great Tit was not doing anything except look brilliant yellow in the bright sunlight.
A Carrion Crow wandering among the snowdrops near the Albert Memorial had found a bit of bread.
A pair of Egyptian Geese seem to have stolen one of the Grey Heron nests on the Serpentine island. You would think that a heron could easily evict them, but perhaps it is the persistence of the Egyptians that wins. These takeovers have become a serious problem in the big heronry on the island in Regent's Park.
On another of the nests, a Grey Heron was holding its own.
In front of the island a row of Cormorants was occupying the posts. The one at the far end is already developing the white head feathers of its breeding plumage. The extent to which Cormorants develop white heads varies a lot from one bird to another.
A Greylag was preening its wings at the Lido. They have very large wings, but manage to unfold them more elegantly than the Egyptian Goose I photographed on the 24th.
The Black Swan was hard to find, but eventually I saw him on the far side of the reed bed at the Diana fountain, pulling out reeds and eating the softer bits of the stiff dry leaves.
