Enjoying the seasons Bounty ..........
Unlike the very flighty Redwings that have now arrived in considerable numbers on the reserve this humble Wood Pigeon was a lot more co-operative, I was well hidden but he knew I was there.
The recent drop in temperatures and the morning frosts will intensify the feeding habits of berry eating birds and when the really '' cold snaps '' start to occur the drive to eat will become uppermost in their behaviour, best wishes to them through the coming months.
I like Wood Pigeon, in flight they remind me of the very versatile World War II plane the Bristol Beaufighter complete with black and white invasion stripes on their wings.
