Wood Pigeon (Russell F Spencer)
Hello again!
All I want to talk about right now are Wood Pigeons – and for two main reasons. Firstly, I got myself into the Guinness World Records Book the other day by getting 226 people to immitate the song of this delightful pigeon using swannee whistles.
Secondly, on a rare visit to The Scrubs this morning, I saw around 700 heading over high from the northeast. They twinkled in the blue skies. A gorgeous sight.
Look at your neighbourhood Wood Pigeon in a different light.

    I partially follow the new name suggestions implimented by the British Ornithologists Union – hence Wood Pigeon. Interestingly, despite them saying that we should say 'Sky Lark' I still prefer the old fashioned 'Skylark'!

    Interesting post and comments on a bird which is easy to take for granted.
    In our house we've nicknamed them 'hoover pigeons' as (like Andrew and Bob have said) they just seem to hoover up everything in sight.
