Birds

A swan on the sunny Thames at Kingston. The river's wide here, and as you can see quite still at the edges. It's just tidal here, but we're close to Teddington Lock, upstream from where the Thames tides no longer have an effect. This is an old photo, but when I was there a couple of weeks back - when further up the river there was serious flooding - the centre of the river was shipping so much water on the ebb tide that you could see gulls just sitting on the surface yet moving faster than cyclists on the banks! Needless to say, attempts to photograph that didn't go too well...

There are a lot, and the swarm round people with bread. As you'd expect, really.
