Photographer's Note

St James's Park, the first of The Royal Parks to be opened to the public, provides habitats for a variety of different species. A short walk away from three palaces (St James's, Westminster and Buckingham Palaces) and in the heart of historical London, the park welcomes over 16.9 million visitors every year and is one of the most visited parks in Europe. This heavy use inevitably has an impact on the wildlife in the area, yet it can be surprising to some how much can live and grow alongside humans.

One of the key habitats in St James's Park is the lake. It is home to a wide range of bird life (including 15 different species of waterfowl) and has nesting sites on Duck Island and West Island.


I have seen many different birds in St. James and other London Park. The cutest were the goslings.
It is probably Canada or Graylag goose.
Workshop #1 - Mother Goose with Kids
Workshop #2 - less obvious bird.
The park is famous for pelicans, but I haven't seen any.
