I've often watched Woodpigeons washing themselves at the edge of our pond and wouldn't have been surprised to see one fall off the ramp and have a bit of a dip. What I didn't expect to see was a group of three birds deliberately and repeatedly going for a swim. I had plenty of time to watch for a while, go and get the camera and take the photos.
