On Sunday, I hoofed it all over town to get to some of the parks. Of course, it was overcast and drizzly when I got to Regent's Park but it did clear up later. Regent's Park has a lake where Tufted Ducks were reported which is definitely a bird that I wanted to see. Tufted Ducks are rare in the US. One or two show up each year but they are usually way north. You may remember that one showed up in NJ last year which I immediately left the office to go see for the Stupid Contest. Here is a photo from London where I saw about a hundred of them. Great looking duck.

And then it hit me - Regent's Park also has a zoo. Doh! Oh well, I got to see and photograph pretty birds without traveling to Svalsbard or wherever.
