Regent's Park 12th to 16th July



A pictorial of Regent's Park over the last 4 days


Life with the Kestrel's in the Wetland Pen (area 32) seems moving along without to many problems. The only thing that concerns us is the lack of small mammals that the parents bring in. That said we are not there every minute of the day, so there might be a time when rodents are more easy to catch.

Blackcap






Chiffchaff





Wren




Long-tailed Tit



Mum was hiding around the corner while junior is hassled by a Jay.



He then moves to join mum but she is having none of it.






A short flight around the area makes him a target for the Magpies, his landing still needs improving.





Dad isn't often on the scene, preferring to keep out of sight.



Mum returns with a small package, it looks like it came from the butchers as it has been skinned and de-boned. I haven't a clue what it was, but it did have some fat left attached.

A great start to July in Bushy Park

July in Bushy Park starts off on the right note

Here are some photos of birds and other wildlife seen recently.


   This Little Grebe got me on to two Red Kites.







    Roaring Arch





    Common Tern















    This is a site that really annoys me, people with no thought feeding totally inappropriate food to 
    such a specialist feeder. She could go back to her chick and regurgitate a breadie pulp down it's 
    throat.  
    Little Owlet

    Red crested Pochard with duckling

    Tufted Duck with a large brood on Heron Pond






    A family of Linnets were in the Brewhouse, they can be seen from the view point 
   along Dukes Head Passage.







    Common Whitethroat looking for a juicy spider.
    Needle-tailed Common Swift
