On 13 November 2011, I was in Hyde Park in London.
It was sunny and still warm for that time of the year. There were rosebuds, and a hoverfly; later than one might expect.
Grey squirrels. Some of them eating walnuts, given by park visitors.
In the Serpentine: mute swans, including juveniles. Grey lag geese and Canada geese.
Coots. An adult and a juvenile great crested grebe.
Great cormorants. Black-headed, lesser black-backed, and herring gulls.
A black-headed gull grabs a piece of bread off a female mallard‘s back.
Tufted ducks. Egyptian geese on a lawn.
A male shoveler swims.
Male and female common pochard.
40.4% of schools taking part in the RSPB’s Big Schools’ Birdwatch reported seeing black-headed gulls, 21.7% saw common gulls and 10.3% saw herring gulls: here.
