Scooby returns


By 230338


It was raining heavy upon the lawn and windows as i looked out just thinking when will it stop as one does. Then out of the tree he came sleek very fast and extremely accurate as he landed on my water fountain. Yes his leg was twisted and yes the spot on his forehead was visible , it was indeed my friend Scooby (the wood pigeon). Got a great veiw through my binoculars but i had to get my camera Ecky thump he turned round . I waited but he decided even though he was wet it was time to go so off he went . And i could,nt get out to him. Maybe next time i will get closer. Scooby has come each year to see me and being very cheeky i took to him despite not admiring most pigeons. Great little thing but absolutely soaking. Take care all enjoy. Tony

Scooby very wet.

Hello Tony! What is it they say?... Never work with animals and children! Obviously he thought he wasn't showing his 'good side'! It's amazing that he comes back to you so occasionally, I wonder where he goes in-between visits? Take care this weekend, and have fun!

May be next time Tony with a bit of luck at least very large and cheeky sat for the posed shot.

hi Elizabeth yes i would like to put a miniature camera on him to find out(LoL). Without seeming cruel i would like to do the same with turbo and Lucy it would make a great video really. As for Tiny well i would like to know where he was going to land, his little legs go at alarming rate on landing. Take care elizabeth, have had a nice weekend. Tony
