Wood Pigeon...

yep, as all the agreements show.
White 'collar' on this very heavy looking bird is a good identification pointer (although this is often absent on young birds). Also look for very distinctive white wingbars in flight. Call is usually a "My TOES are blee-ding" or "Take TWO cows Ta-ffy" (take your pick!)

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
