Chickens aside, I like watching birds, not eating them! Yard birds (slang here for chickens) are proper lush!
They serve wood pigeon at posh restaurants but I would not want to eat one!
One of the first things I bought in England was a Birds of Britain and Europe book. The collared dove has a black half stripe at his/her neck on each side. I consider myself a "twitcher"!
Ring around a rosy around the pole.
Pixie, you are probably right. The Wood pigeons are the 747s of pigeons - enormous things, double the size of anything we see here. I didn't look at his collar, but he's often around, so I will, next time.
Got bickies in the oven; must off! Toodles!
Collard dove, 28cm; wood pigeon 40 cm.
Hi Helen. I think that was a colared dove. Wood pigeon are much larger!
One large wood dove scrounging in the grass, and the sheep are clustered down the field.
