Lost, frightened, hungry and tired
Our newest addition to the menagerie. He/She (?) walked into my kitchen this morning, completely unafraid. It is a racing pigeon that has got lost and is a bit bewildered so is now sunbathing on the roof of the shed, having been given a bit of wheat.
The dogs, who are sunbathing outside the back door, are keeping a wary eye on our new friend. They were so shocked when it walked into the kitchen, right between their paws this morning (all birds within 50 miles normally flee in terror....) and I think they think it is some sort of "Superhero", as it has no fear of them or us "two legs".
We shall keep an eye on it for the next couple of days and, if it hasn't flown off, try and catch it and return it to its owner. In the meantime, we are trying to work out what to call it......
