Hi, I found an egg on the path when going for a walk around our local lake, it was cold when I found it but after incubating it, I've checked and it's still alive, can anyone identify it?
This is it next to a large chicken egg.
Many thanks! :)

I am not good with egg I.d. I was thinking a duck species, esp as the chicken egg is fairly large. Wood pigeon is probably right though. Eggs need leaving where people see them.
