Hi all...everyday I get a woody come down to the pond for a drink, however today it had company.
I juvenile I believe ...flapping its wings and staying very close to the parent, although I think there maybe something wrong with its beak.
Hopefully you can see in my terrible pics if it normal or not.
Hope its just my terrible eyesight and the bird is fine!

Young Woodpigeons do have rather strange looking bills before adulthood like these two below.
I can't tell from your photos but it could just be the fleshy white cere developing on the top of the bill which adults have. Keep an eye on it and try to get some more shots.
