    Very nice photo's. Must be quite alarming having one of those admiring your lunchtime sandwich.
    Very exotic fauna but I'm glad we just have squirrels and pigeons in our parks here in the UK.

    Best regards

    Thank you Andy for the kind comments.

    Only the Crows remind me the parks in the U.K. No ducks, swans, magpies or gulls in the parks over here and I really miss some of the parks in the U.K.

    The Bute Park in Cardiff - South Wales has a special meaning to me. It was part of my everyday life during two years and I used to go there to relax after work, to enjoy the view or take some photos. I really miss the time I lived in England and Wales and my visits to Scotland. It's a shame my English haven't improve much btw :redface: .

    Cheers.
