Happy New Year/Happy old Woodpigeon

...although in actual fact it's not *that* old.


This bird, in the garden this afternoon, was ringed as a second-year in 2011, which makes it four-and-a-half-ish. Still a long way from the 17 year 8 month record but nonetheless interesting that is had stayed in the garden for so long (it pops in from time to time throughout the year).
