A male pigeon doing his thing - puffing up his neck, scrapng his tail on the floor, standing tall over the female then crouching below her. It was enough to persuade me that some creatures thnk that 'that time of year' has arrived. I'm not so sure that the female pigeon he was trying to impress was convinced.

My regular crow pair have started inspecting their regular nest (it will need a little repair after the winter) in my neighbours' tree and I spotted a pair of coots doing the same thing on a park lake last week so it does seem spring is only round the corner.
