Another London Day

I was in London again today to accompany my Mum on another appointment at St Thomas Hospital. It was a wet and miserable morning, not good for much at all. Cormorants, Black-headed Gulls and Pigeons were the only birds seen as we crossed Westminster Bridge. It was almost one o’clock  when we came out of the hospital and as the weather had improved we decided to stop off at Kew Gardens for a couple of hours on the way back to Mum’s house. Arriving there after a look around a fabulous organic shop next to Kew Gardens Station. By now the cloud had cleared and we walked around the gardens in lovely sunshine. There were loads of birds around. Parakeets as usual along with three Green Woodpeckers, a Mistle Thrush, five Linnets and plenty of the common stuff. On the grass around the lake there were a lot of Canada Geese, Mallards, Coots and a couple of Peacocks. On the water, Tufties, Red Crested Pochard and a single Shoveler. There was still a lot of autumn colour to be seen and along with a look in at the Palm House and the shop it all added up to an enjoyable afternoon’s visit.          All the pictures are from Kew and were taken on my phone
