Regent's Park

In central London, Grey Herons in Regent’s Park are busy nest building/repairing. A quick visit before work this morning found several birds around the lake carefully selecting twigs blown down by the recent stormy weather. The sun was low in the sky so I returned at lunchtime for some more photographs. It was also lunchtime for the birds and the tourists as the images of the ‘feeding scrum’ below illustrate. I’ll need to return and try for flight shots of the herons with their DIY materials.
