We've a few fallen apples in the garden, which are slowly being eaten by many creatures as the days pass by.
I managed to snap this wood pigeon have a nibble at a part eaten and fallen apple.
Are any predators around?

I've heard of the hungry caterpillar so there's a story in this somewhere ! Now you know how to make pastry for the birds you need to make another batch but this time leave out the bird seed and add a little salt; Simmer the peeled apples with a little sugar and cinnamon and leave out the four and twenty blackbirds as you bake the pie lol Then text me and I'll be round for dinner !!
Nature is full of stories, that's what makes it so wonderful.

Nigel O said:Fallen apples ... and no thrushes?? Scandalous! You need to have serious words with your local birds, Mike, they're getting lax!
I don't think I've seen a thrush in the garden for a couple of years, at least!
Too many wood pigeons and magpies, though the blackbirds went quiet last year, seem to be plentiful this year.
