Catch that pigeon now!

Well, on camera, anyway.

This pigeon landed in a tree in Bicclescombe Park in Ilfracombe, North Devon, looking very pleased with himself. He had a twig or something similar in his beak, possibly nesting material.

He seemed to think he could not be seen, but I had my camera . . .

I think he spotted me and didn’t look very pleased . . .

. . . but he was up in the tree and I was on the ground where no one could reach him.

I took his photo, thanked him, then walked on.

Beautiful start to a Monday morning

I couldn’t have asked for a lovelier February morning.

At Bicclescombe Park Ilfracombe, North Devon, the sun seemed to want to play tennis . . .
