There’s been quite lot of chat about pigeons on the site – I have a very cheeky wood pigeon which I have been trying to photograph for a while – and finally – GOT HIM in flagrante!
Here he is lurking on the fence to see if the coast’s clear.
Then he turned and stared at me through the window quite blatantly!
After which, he decided that I was no threat – or else he didn’t care – and flew to the roof of the bird table as the next stage.
Finally, he flew down and reaped his reward – until I’d got my photo and then I chased him away – as usual!
In the meantime, the other small birds (my regulars) were scattered except for a robin who decided to pick up the food displaced by the pigeon when he landed.
When I had chased the pigeon away with the help of Henry, who always chases pigeons if he sees them (well-trained dog!) the other birds gradually dared to return: first the sparrows -
Then my favourite long-tailed tits who always come in a group…
But, like Sylvester Stallone, he’ll be back!
