Everything Has Gone, But Nothing Has Arrived - London WWT - 2nd April

A relatively quiet day in Barnes.  Most of the winter birds had departed, with the exception of a few Teal and Shoveler. There was very little sign of spring migrants, although five Sand Martins had arrived and were checking the holes in the bank (and seemed oblivious to the new camera that has been installed).

Some time for experimentation resulted in the following Mute Swan and Redshank:



Three small Common Lizards were sunning on the side of one of the hides:



The Great-crested Grebes were pulling fish out on a regular basis as usual.  This Perch actually managed to wriggle away. The Grebe dived after it, but came up empty-billed.
