Horrendous weather persists so my birding exploits have been dulled of late. However, my efforts in the garden are still earning their gentle homely reward. Yesterday not one, not two, but three Stock Dove strolled around the lawn. A new record for a species I'm proud to call a daily visitor. I don't know many people who can boast them.
Truth be told, they were initially attracted down by the pesky feral pigeons, the nemesis of my bird feeding efforts. I try to forget that bit.
