A Passing Visitor

In our previous residence we were besieged by pigeons – those town pigeons, feral pigeons, which the RSPB call Rock Doves which sounds much nicer than they are.  We ended up putting spikes on our window sills.

Today we thought we might be able to add species number 41 to our bird list when our first pigeon (not counting Wood Pigeons) was sighted.  It seemed to want to take up residence with the young hens.  Closer examination showed a leg-ring and it was clear it was a slightly confused racing pigeon.  It was obviously in search of love and corn.
