Autumn Birds

I feel very privileged to have Mandarin Ducks showing beautifully right on my doorstep in Bushy Park as they can be very elusive in other parts of Surrey and London.

They really remind me of autumn leaves with their red and orange head plumage..

and the drab but very errr....speckly female

There were many other exotic birds present, including these Egyptian Geese....

*****STOP PRESS******
Cape Teal in Bushy Park attracted to Warburtons Whole Grain Brown Bread!!!!!
This Grey Heron was present along the same river as a Kingfisher
and heres a shot of it in the fading orange light...
A beautiful white Fallow Deer was an added bonus in the fading light..
