I had a homing pigeon stop off in my garden a few years ago... resting up and enjoying my hospitality.
It was the first time I had come across one... but since that first encounter I seem to attract them.
We had one in Mandy's Dads garden last summer that stayed for a few weeks... one then became two for a few days before they both decided to continue their adventure elsewhere.
We have had encounters with others out walking locally and even on the coast at South Stack Anglesey.
The image above is of Derwentwater in the Lake District... the hill to the left with two bumps is Catbells.
Catbells was the home of Mrs Tiggy Winkle in Beatrix Potters childrens stories.
He had the biggest bird bath in the world and was making the most of it...
...and no fear of me... I'm sure I could have handled him had I wanted to...
...I hope he found his way home.
