Wildlife Update

An update on this post.

And the list so far is:
Great Crested Grebe
Great crested grebe, on Canada Water

Mute Swan
Mute swan, on Surrey Water

Coot
Coot, on Surrey Water

Lesser Black-Backed Gull
Lesser black-backed gull, on a bollard in the Thames

Blue Tit
Blue tit (I think -- a great tit would have a black band down its belly) in Russia Dock Woodland

Tufted Duck
Tufted ducks (male) on Surrey Water

Blackbird
Blackbird (female) in Russia Dock Woodland (terrible photo, which will be updated when I get a decent one)

Stock Dove

Black-Headed Gull

Canada Goose

Pied Wagtail

Cormorant

At this point, I changed my camera, having bought a shiny new Kodak Easyshare V610 with 10x optical zoom, and also a Gorillapod tripod (since you need steady hands or bright sunlight for 10x zoom). The photos get better, and more worth clicking through on.

Magpies

Grey Squirrel

Carrion Crow

Mallard

Black-Headed Gulls

Black-headed Gulls, Common Gulls, Feral Pigeons, Stock Dove
Black-headed gulls, common gulls, feral pigeons and stock dove by the Thames

Grey Wagtail

Woodpigeon

Also seen, but not photographed: robin, great spotted woodpecker, house sparrow.

That makes 24 so far, already beating ajshepherd and armb's votes.
