Feral Pigeon

By teocali
Had a lovely day yesterday at WWT Arundel in the company of Ina and Graham (Gezina and Gray-Ina). Glorious weather but quiet on the more "exotic" wildlife front. We had a lot of fun capturing birds in flight, the feral pigeons providing good sport, as they homed in on the seed being scattered for the ducks - not as easy as Ina makes it look ! Wink

My thanks to you all for your great response to yesterday's Great Tit upload - always very much appreciated Smile

A shot to be proud of. Well framed well taken. Cameras take photos you have taken a picture. Common birds are often overlooked.

Brilliant timing Sylvia to catch him coming in to land. I don't know what you mean about "exotic" wildlife unless of course you are referring to the epzers'!Wink

Hi Ed
Well, I suppose Epzers might be included in that - LOL! By "exotic" I really meant things like Goldcrests and Water Voles, being exotic by comparison with the very common and despised Feral Pigeon Wink
