Docklands waterway - just off the Thames near Canary Wharf
No interactions present.
Well done - a very nice record for iSpot UK.
I hope that this does not mean we will lose your invaluable input into iSpot ZA (http:\\za.ispot.org.uk).
If I recall correctly, our wild Swans from near Sedgefield (s. Afr.) were wiped out by egg-collectors in the 1990s?
Went out with my camera this afternoon and took masses of pictures. Would have got more if I had a good birding camera like you have- the gulls, cormorants and herons are just "sitting ducks".

Some say it's time to throw the textbook understanding of lichens out the window.
"Now there will be more chaos, more confusion in lichenology ,...."
... the joys of birding in the capitol (or any inner city/urban area I guess) is the wildlife is generally more used to large bipedal apes roaming their territory. I love it, just have to remind myself I can’t just walk up to a creature when in the countryside.
A cormorant on the Thames eating what looked like a sole; an urban fox crossing the road into a garden and a squirrel peeping out of a nest in a tree - plastic bags as part of the structure - is this normal?
they were very close to the bank, and obviously accustomed to people.
