No, not the ogling-at-women type of birdwatching...

Cat is going mad this morning, craning his neck to see the birds nesting at the top of our house. I got down to his eye level, and sure enough he has a cracking view of a pigeon, looking all shiny grey and resplendent in the 8am sunlight.

If you ask me, pigeons get a bad rap. I know the ones in the middle of big cities are a bit grotty looking – and even then you’ve got to feel sorry for the ones that have missing feet – but once you get to smaller towns and villages, they really are just as magnificent as any other bird you care to mention. Except for magpies, of course, which are just plain evil.
