Watch the birdie!

I took a nice walk through the park to South Kensington today, had an adequate Japanese meal in a cheapo restaurant there, then walked back. On the way back I ran into major_clanger and attimes_bracing who had been visiting the Science Museum, but we were heading in opposite directions so we basically said "hi" and went our separate ways.

Time for some more picture spamming - some from earlier in the month, some today.

First of all, the obligatory Crossrail picture. These are tunnel segments being stored at a yard a couple of miles to the west

Next, the latest canalside pictures - these are just adorable, a couple of coots with a chick climbing on their back, and a duck swimming through vast quantities of floating weed with ducklings in convoy.

A picture I took in the park a month or so ago, a crow eating something - not sure what but it looks bloody, didn't want to get too close and scare it off.

Next, a lot of pictures I took in Kensington Gardens today - mostly swans and other water-fowl at the Round Pond, also a rather odd looking conifer and a cute water fountain - which was being used to give a dog a drink when I was there, so I don't recommend it for human use!

Not sure what this is but it's teeny and cute.

A sculpture by the Long Water (the lake in Kensington Gardens that becomes the Serpentine in Hyde Park. About 20 ft high, not sure who it's by.
