The common woodpigeon a very frequent visitor to my back garden feeding on the crumbs of food dropped by the birds from the feeding stations.
A few facts about the common woodpigeon:
As well as being a common resident, large numbers of woodpigeons migrate here from the continent in the autumn and winter.
The other interesting feature about Wood pigeons is their size. They often come across as slightly overweight, and one consequence of their size is the manner in which they walk. It isn’t straight, but a waddle, which gives the impression that they possess over-sized bottoms.
