    Hi Anna,

    Again more lovely photos!

    We had a racing pigeon that came in once, we named him Schumacher! He was black and white and stayed for a couple of weeks feeding from the feeder, quite tame.  One day I came out to find him perched on the back of the garden chair right near the back door watching me.  So I chatted away to him (as you do) and he then flew off.  We never saw him again.  I'd like to think he was waiting to say goodbye in a silly sentimental kind of way.....but when I saw the rather large deposit he'd left on the chair...mmmm perhaps not!

    We did have photos of him but alas we lost these when our hard drive failed.

     

    Haha....Schumacher, that's a bit better than the name I gave this one, all it seemed to do whenever I saw it was eat....so I called it Piggy! It was an affectionate term though, I loved that pigeon! I do hope it found its way home again. Oh a hard-drive failure....I know the pain that can bring, my external hard-drive got knocked off the desk by one of my dogs and broken into several pieces, I lost countless treasured photos :(

  • Hello again everyone! I know this doesn't really fit in this thread, but I didn't feel I ought to start a new one just to tell you this!

     I love to sketch animals - be they inspired by my own photographs or by images in books/magazines etc. - and as such I have added pictures of some of my sketches to my own personal gallery on here - I hope you enjoy them! Still don't know how to link to it so again, just go to my profile page and look at my gallery from there! Thank you :)

    Hi Anna

    As well as the lovely artistic photographs here,

    I love the sketch of your Lapwing on your Profile

    Did you do that one yourself

    Can we see a full blown one of the same bird (unless it is on the Gallery pictures)

    Regards

    Thank you very much! The lapwing is indeed now in my own gallery, as are a few others too - but to save you looking, here it is again (and yes, I did it myself)   :)
