this male mallard had me looking twice: he's become entwined with a postman's elastic band.
As far as I could see, he was still feeding ok and untroubled by his new headgear.
Hopefully, it will wear away safely in a few days.
white bryony is the creeper, I think. It's durable and still going strong.
We are nearly in mid October and the plant is still flowering and attracting bees.
a dunnock attempts to sneak past me, serving to illustrate the furtive nature of these birds.
still present are young moorhen.
They have bred well this year and are still pestering the parent birds for food.
another young moorhen catches the warming sun on the bridge.
still the star of the show, a male kingfisher.
Anyone seen a female recently?
