Home, sweet home

When I am Rich, I’ll make sure there are plenty of safe and cosy nesting sites for all the birds I’m hoping to attract into my lovely, big garden. Although this pair seem to have already decided where they’re going to set up home.

Folklore tells us that birds choose their mates and begin nest building on St Valentine’s Day, but these wood pigeons took up residence in a neighbour’s apple tree several weeks ago. They might just be sheltering from all the wind and rain but the way they keep snuggling up together makes me think they’re making plans!

They're lovely. You did well to get that picture Linda.

Maybe they got together last Valentine's?

It wasn't too difficult, Susan. They sat still and posed for me!

You could be right, Patsy, they do look like an old married couple, don't they?
