On 12 november 2011, I was in St James’s park in London.
Grey squirrels everywhere.
Also quite some rooks.
In the lake: Canada and grey lag geese. Coots. Moorhens.
Male and female tufted ducks.
Tame great white pelicans, sitting near a mute swan.
A ring-necked parakeet, flying and calling.
Goldeneye. Male and female pintail.
Male and female common pochards.
Ruddy shelduck. Black swan.
Barnacle geese. Snow geese. Egyptian geese. Red-breasted geese. Smew.
