Todays Stroll in the Park.

A return visit to Richmond Park today. No new sightings but a chance to capture some images for future posts .... so here is an 'ad hoc' selection for now.
Robin (Erithicus rubecula)
 Great Tit (Parus major)
 Various signs new growth - Rhododendrons in bud and a few in flower plus the fragrant Viburnum 'Dawn'

 Double Egyptian (Alopochen aegyptiaca)
 Feral Pigeon (Columba livia [domest.])

Mr and Mrs Mallard in sync.
The Lookout (Red Deer Stag).


  1. Oh, my how pretty! So many signs of Spring. I always enjoy your posts, Frank. Thank you for sharing.


  2. I know I've said it before - but your Robin is so much prettier than ours. Great photos today!

  3. quite a productive day - all sorts of good photos. Love the robin and the red deer. Great photos !

  4. Beautiful images, Frank!! Your Robin looks different than mine.

  5. Frank, these are all so very beautiful!!! I'm an avid bird watcher [well, as much as I can, when I'm out driving around]....and your nature photos, the flowers, the birds, the deer--------simply breathtaking!

    Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by yesterday. Your company is always welcomed!!

  6. The Double Egyptian is really good Frank.

  7. Lovely photos Frank, your Robin and Great Tit posed in a much better position and light than mine did :)

    Lovely to see all the pink blooms. I have Viburnum Dawn in my garden, she is always such a welcome sight when there is not much else to see.

    Lovely stag photo too!

  8. Excellent selection Frank and I love the portrait of the Egyptian as well as the robin...

  9. HI Frank..lovely flowers coming into bloom ,and I guess I can think about what I have to look forward to instead of being envious!! : }
    I love the bottoms up of the Mallards feeding, and the beautiful irridescent colors of the pigeon!!

  10. Thanks Lois.

    Hi Shelley. I won't disagree with you.

    Hi Jill. Every day brings something in front of the lens.

    Hi Cindy. Yes, yours is much larger.

    Hi Hootin' Anni. Nice to hear from you and I appreciate the compliments.

    Cheers Roy.

    Hi Jan. The Robin was very obliging but the Great Tit took a little bit of work. I've always been fond of of 'Dawn'.

    Thanks Chris.

    Hi Grammie. No doubt I'll find a few more flowery images over the coming weeks just to tickle your fancy.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
