    Aw a little squab.  They are so vulnerable on the ground.  Glad you are looking out for it. :)

    I have never seen a baby before thanks for posting the pic.
    Building a garden is very personal. It's not quite the same as installing a boiler.

    That one’s got to the prettier stage … earlier on they look more like pterodactyls 🤪

    That's one of those things people always say you never see!  I hadn't seen one before either, interesting.

    @Completerookie  Love the baby pigeon. Used to wonder why you never saw baby pigeons and apparently they stay in the nest until they no longer look like juveniles. Hope your new friend keeps safe as he looks so vulnerable. Maybe his parents no longer wanted him staying at home.  :)

    We used to get them falling out the conifer at work, where they were nesting.
    I doubt if many of them ever made it. They're very clumsy. 
    They are indeed, somewhat unattractive when very young @Dovefromabove. Face only a mother could love  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
