First stop London.
Or rather secobd stop actually. I started the day in Oslo with meeting, then continued here. Came to "my" hotel, where they recognized me and gave me a much better room than last time :-). Left my suitcase, and walked out........to breath this metropolitan city which I love so much.
First thing I did was to check on my camelia, but the season is over. Though I found a blooming camelia in bath not many days ago, there were none left on "my" bush.
Then I walked down to Kansington Gardens. I hadn´t eaten since lunch, and was starving, but I couldn´t let daylight pass. Evening light is often perfect photo light.
Goal - bird watching and photographing.....
....but when I look through my photos, I must search for the birds.
Or is this a big blue bird learning to fly?????
But these are not birds, are they??????
Some birds tried to hide....
Others acted like they owned the world.
The first bird, the black one in one of the first photos must be some kind of duck. The second is a dove or a pigeon. Then comes a grey heron. But what about this beautiful one?
Can it be a Grebe? A Great Crested Grebe?
I could live my life in the parks and gardens of London!
