SU0725 : Woodpigeon

taken 14 years ago, near to Bishopstone, Wiltshire, Great Britain

In the eyes of farmers, the innocuous-looking wood-pigeon is undoubtedly 'public enemy number one' among British birds. Townsfolk find this hard to credit when they see the chubby, attractive bird quietly feeding in a local park. But in the country the wood-pigeon does immense damage to crops. It's particularly fond of cereals, potatoes, beans, peas and greens.
