Ha ha.....perhaps pigeons are brighter than we give them credit for.....they probably know that monkies/chimps don't come from these parts!

Crikey a pigeon standing on his head......what an acrobat!!!
Oh , sorry, .....on the monkey's head!! I see!!

Lol Paul ... I had that image in mind too! Sorry Davros :o)

A 'Tumbler' pigeon might stand on its head!

Ha ha,...you're as naughty as me Mrs Tulip!!
But I'm a pirate.....what's your excuse?

Paul, does being married to a Seagulls fan give me a good excuse?!

Anything is excused.....that's enough to turn anyone Bonkers!!

Davros, this looks brilliant .. shame it doesn't work .... it would certainly get a few laughs on 'Dragons Den' ? Looking on the bright side .. if there was a pigeon on this scarecrow, that's one less pigeon eating the neighbours vegetables.... lol.

He looks a right grumpy ole git, I guess he's fed up of hanging around all day....

I don't want to depress you, but when we lived at Willow Cottage , we had 20 pigeons around us and nothing we did worked so ended up putting all our seating areas under cover and netting all the brassicas !

That's one thing you'll have been glad to leave behind Rose!

Well I thought so too, Steragram , but as we turned the corner to our new home 2 years ago...what did I see...2 pigeons ! Hahaa!
