Silent Sunday: A Real Treat

close up of a head shot of wood pigeon feeding from a hand

This wood pigeon had been blown from its nest during a gale and was rescued and hand-reared by a local man until he was ready to be released back into the wild.

Seven years on, the wood pigeon still greets the man on his daily walk and stops for a chat and a treat.
