The Black Swan is keeping his place on the Long Water, and was with his girlfriend 100 yards inside the bridge that marks the boundary.
He threatened a Mute Swan that wanted to come under the bridge.
His threat display, with lowered head, is not like that of Mute Swans, but the swans on the lake now understand it, and are probably wary of it because this little creature punches above his weight. It is quite like the threat display of Canada Geese, here seen on the Serpentine during a territorial displute with another pair.
Blondie the Egyptian Goose was standing peacefully with her mate. She is a very mild-mannered bird and I have never seen her threatening anyone.
The Coots' nest on the Long Water near the Vista is noticeably larger than it was yesterday.
The Great Crested Grebes nesting near the bridge were exchanging greetings.
A Wood Pigeon in the leaf yard stared curiously at the camera.
Just up the fence from here, two Nuthatches were coming down to the railings to be fed.
A Treecreeper was running up a birch tree at the uphill corner of the enclosure.
One of the Little Owls was in the oak tree near the Albert Memorial, enjoying a mild sunny spell.
