Winter residents in this part of the world Felix, tend to set up a territory for the Winter and stay there! This bird has been around since Christmas at least!

I've never seen one, but I guess it pays to actively look though :) unfortunately I dealt with a bird today; a wood pigeon but under nasty circumstances. Gilbert caught it and he only are the breast meat then left it on the sofa in the conservatory :(

I wish more people would eat Wood Pigoen, I did as a kid most weeks!! It would take care of the 'population explosion'!!

I grew up in the North Devon countryside Ron there wasn't a week went by without one if the locals bringing us pigeon/pheasant/rabbit/grouse that they had shot I many of and didn't want it to go to waste. I miss those days. I'll never be in sub a pristine house and environment ever again. I was so lucky. Wildlife galore there. There were all kinds of birds, foxes, a badger set and also red deer used to frequent the garden and eat my mums roses very early in the morning :)
