Good day to you all

I hope that you all have a great day

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Collared Doves are often ignored but they are the most successful breeding bird we have in the UK.............we have lots around us and they visit us daily........they are very photogenic birds..........GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

They are the only birds I see regularly here and hear too, there is one particularly annoying one that loves the neighbour's antenna Grin But he is beautiful although noisy.

WAS a little bit worried by the title. Wary of pigeon porn...

Especially as the little so-and-sos (well: big, fat, bloated) tend to sit in the beech tree over my drive, and crap on my car. They don't actually seem to pause in this even during hte mating season, when they sit up there making more skyrats.

So this tender sequence is a welcome antidote. Until the next time I have to scrape stuff off my car's bonnet...
