Professor Brian Cox

Today can only get better.

This summer, our garden has been colonised by two wood-pigeons, Mr and Mrs, no doubt, them being loyal and monogamous birds. Pigeons are in general early risers, and they can be bloody noisy, especially when you sleep with the window open. Their other characteristics include being strong flyers, and not being very bright. Ours were quiet this morning. When we got up, we discovered why. Sadly, Mr Wood-pigeon had seen his reflection in  the glass of the garden room, and had flown straight towards it, with the inevitable, fatal result. Mrs Wood-pigeon was perched on the house next door, wondering why he didn’t get up.

So my day began with an informal funeral.  Like I said, it can only get better.

    Awr! That’s a shame, she will be heartbroken….As for “Walter Pigeon ” he has now taken to having a dip in your pool here in Spain, just to get a drink, we have a video of the decisive moment after he had strutted up and down and tried from various angles to reach the water, he suddenly went for it and had a mini float and sip and took off, now becoming a regular visiter!
