Found this visitor at the back of the studio today. An exhausted homing pigeon. It is now fed and watered and awaiting news from its keeper.
Not had a pigeon in the studio for a long time, not since the day when we had ducks, swallows and a pigeon all on the same day. More recently it has been a frog, a jackdaw fledgling and a wren. Ah country ways. Just sorry the camera was not to hand when 300 sheep turned up outside the studio last week, most amusing if not a little messy, but managed to round most of them into the orchard until the farmer arrived. Love Rosedale, it truely is never dull !
