Hello Heron - Goodbye Woodies

Herons have been pretty well absent from the lower river for some time, but now they are back on a daily basis. The parr are the main attraction heading downstream at the moment. This week I will have to say goodbye to my beautiful woodpigeon pals, it will be time for them to leave the safety and security of the Aviary and fend for themselves. 

They are now acclimatised and have learned to peck around for food. It has been an enlightening and heartwarming experience, rearing them for the past few weeks. 

They are friendly affectionate and gentle doves, I will miss them.
