For once the grey cloud lifted, the sun came out - albeit a bit hazy - and the Park sprang to life.

Ducks were being fed -

and the gulls were screeching trying to get some of the scraps!

And the swans were doing whatever it is swans do in the reed bed!

and the play ground was full of excited children.

There were also small children on scooters and slightly larger children on bicycles - all of them a bit of a hazard to a dog on a long lead with no sense at all. Lots of dog walkers, throwing balls and sticks, and LOTS of dogs! I would have taken photographs of the children, as they looked rather good, but I thought people might think me a bit, well, weird, if I did that.

So I came home and tried to take a photograph of a blue tit on the fat we have put out. Its not the best photo I have ever taken!

Even though swans are mean, agressive birds, they are truly so lovely I can almost forgive them!

It's still really cold for us, too! That couple in your photo looks warmer than we are here in LA!

They are great photos. The one with the gulls and the cattails was really nice and the swans in the reeds. The park is certainly alive and it's January!
