For a little while now , Carol has been wanting to have a day up in London . I can't stand all the people that you have to be with there , but , as I usually do my thing , decided to take Carol to where she wanted to be . Local bus , tram and finally underground , and there we were looking down on the Thames , a very low Thames , and still getting lower . As we walked along the bank , several Cormorant , Teal and Black-headed Gull were seen , and where a small stream emptied into the main
the site . We were watching a 'Coot war' in one of the ditches and I was hoping that one of the birds
would fly directly towards where I was standing on a small bridge . That didn't happen , but this
From the same place I found 2 possibly 3 small birds , flitting about amongst the dead Bullrushes .
No dancing Bittern today , but the important thing was that Carol had her day 'up in the smoke' .
I did take some shots in the World Wetlands area , covering foreign and some native species , if things are quiet tomorrow , I might post some of those for interest .
