The last few days have finally been beautiful. Spring has truly arrived this week! Today I got up early and headed to Bushy Park. Always a wildlife hotspot, today it seemed extra specially busy, as if the birds were as excited about the sunshine as I was.
I took quite a lot of pictures today, but I was especially taken by this pair of pochard portraits. There were a small group of red crested pochards swimming out in one of the ponds. Once I sat down they became bolder and this male swam almost right up to me.
