The mallard ducklings at Earl’s Path Pond in Epping Forest are still going strong.
There are at least eight of them and they are quite bold, even when mum isn’t about.
In the forest the thistles have finished flowering and now the seeds are waiting for a draft of wind to see them on their way.
We have a new visitor to our garden., excuse the quality of the shot, it was sneaked through the kitchen window as I was hiding behind the chilli plants.
This is Scraggy and he’s a recently fledged magpie. I put some breadcrumbs out for him most days, but he is very nervous and spooks easily.
