Photographer's Note

Grebes indeed eat feathers! Apparently it helps with their digestion. Here you can see Mum Crested Grebe feeding her babies (known as "humbugs" for their stripy pattern) with one.

I have posted quite a few photos from my local park (Bushy Park) and wrote about it in the note to this upload: What I didn't mention is that it is one of three huge local parks full of wildlife, the other two being Home Park (also known as Hampton Court Park) and Richmond Park. In all three you can get really close to the resident wildlife. All three parks are famous for their populations of deer but what I love the most is the almost tame bird species that are quite skittish in other locations.

Being able to get close to wildlife is what I miss the most about my home town.
