Working from home with an office window overlooking my bird feeders and bird bath can be fun. I glanced up from the computer screen this morning to see this wood pigeon enjoying the sun and the water in the bird bath - it kept settling down into the water with a wing extended skywards...
Very undignified from my perspective!
