A Kit of Woodpigeons....06/03/2012
A sunny day today and having an hour to spare this afternoon I had a short walk around Wassell Grove Pools. A flock of c300 Woodpigeons were feeding busily in a field when suddenly they took flight and headed my way! They were so low I could feel the downdraught from their wingbeats, fortunately nothing landed on or close by me! I know they were only Woodpigeons but it was a nice sight to see so many. Most of the Woodpigeons headed for the nearby trees, they were still perched and lapping up the warm(ish) sunshine when I returned to my car. Robin, Blue & Great Tit, Blackbird, Skylark and a Buzzard were the only other bird species seen on my short walk. Several plants of Coltsfoot now in flower were a delight to see in the sunshine.
