By George !

Trust member George Berryman was amazed by a local Wood pigeon that was eating out of his hand today.

Wood Pigeons are usually fairly shy birds and keep their distance from humans. This is one of a pair I have been feeding over the past year and have gained their trust.

They have been feeding along with the feral pigeons around the Merryton bridge for some time now. 

This one started eating out of my hand the other day, and George had the privilege of doing likewise today. 

They are beautiful birds, and getting this close to wildlife is a joy.
