We’re having some building work done, and as soon as the scaffolding was erected the doves arrived to claim it.
Where would be the best place to build their nest?
On the wide, wooden planks of the walkway?
Against the house wall where it would be sheltered from the weather?
No, they had a much better idea. Let’s see if we can balance some twigs on the metal poles right at the edge …
They spent the rest of the day bringing in twigs, watching most of them fall to the ground, and flying off to find some more. Luckily, the builders arrived the next day and the doves (surprisingly) decided to abandon their new-found home.
