A wood pigeon that visits the garden every now and then. We don’t really like to encourage it as it eats all the bird food in one visit , its a greedy bird but quite a character.

I am a 53 year old ageing Hippy with a love of nature . A romantic at heart but sadly single. I used to be a decorator but since my father became ill I have given up my business to care for him full time . When I have time to myself I like nothing more than to get out into the woods or the countryside and capture the sights around me. I hope you enjoy seeing what I see. Thanks for viewing. Kind regards Mark.
