Entertaining afternoon with THE BIRDS.

19 comments


Weather cold and miserable as predicted by the Met……so watched the birds in our garden……..The Collared Doves are a constant delight.


How do you balance on these blooming things Missus?


Put your head down for a start………


That’s better, now stop chatting………


Easy when you know how!!
Trying to keep the fat pigeons from eating in the Dovecot, have put a stone in the entrance.
Somebody has taken a liking to our Dovecot…..


Nobody told me it was for Doves only?


Rather fancy!! prefer compact and bijou me…….


How did that pesky robin get in………..


It cannot be that difficult?


If only my butt was smaller, really will have to go on a diet!!!
Well hope you enjoyed a visit to our garden, the rain has stopped and now the sun is trying to come out ,it is also half time (football) tea and homemade ginger biscs have been requested………..

I think the motif above the door fooled that little robin! Poor old pigeon but I bet he will be back to try again. Very entertaining - just what I needed on a horrible wet day (again!).

You did make me laugh, Dd! You remember that I call them 'Jumbo Jets' because of their landing skills - on top of my poor plants!

I think he got what he deserved. LOL.

Great pictures, DD! What a great way of spending a few wet hours, watching our feathered friends & making a blog from their photos!

Any ginger biscuits left???

Great pix.. Dotty.
Lovely to have Collared Doves and robins. :o)

What about changing the motif to a pigeon pie? The Doves are lovely ours have lived with us for years. If we forget to feed them they knock/peck on the window.

Such a pretty Dovecot..I like the colors it is painted too...and the doves seem to like it as well as does the Robin..I imagine he was just getting in out of the weather.....seems it would be a bit big for that little fellow...lol...

Dots that was super , the dovecote is so jolly, I love it! The pigeons round here are really fat as well it must be 'cos of all the food put out this winter.

Glad it cheered you all up, we need a good laugh at the moment what with all the snow rain etc, and I do not like the sound of Thursdays weather, the weather man said it could be INTERESTING!! and well, all know what that means don't we?
Sorry the biscuits have all been eaten, need something to keep the cold out.!Lincs we bought the Dovecot from a firm on eBay.
Spritz nothing could survive after having been sat upon by these fatties.
