Bushy Park is the second largest Royal Park in London covering an area of around 1,099 acres and there is an incredible range of wildlife and habitats within its walls. It has a distinctive landscape, shaped in part by its history as a royal hunting ground, but also by its many ponds and streams. I often take a stroll around its largest expanse of water and here is just a sample of what I usually encounter at this time of the year. FAB.
For the time being this female Pigeon is ignoring the attention of a broody male.
A juvenile Grey Heron chilling out.
Mute Swan creating waves.
Mr Mallard keeping an eye on everything.
A Fallow Buck looking for a snack.
Magpie, a little damp after the rain.
Jackdaw drinking some recent rainfall.
Red-crested Pochard trying to sleep.
