January 9th – I had to nip up to Newtown in the morning, and went via the canal and Ogley Junction. I was intrigued on the bridge by a quiet but fairly large roost of birds in the trees behind the old lock cottage by The Long Pound.
It turned out they were just wood pigeons.
Whilst very familiar with these ambling, affable birds, I can’t recall seeing flocks of them like this before, but I guess it must be normal.
An intriguing thing on an otherwise very dull morning.
