14 January 2009

I heard a sound I had not heard for a while this morning as I was starting some washing-up: our pair of woodpigeons was on the fence and had just mated, it was the sound of the male's orgasm... It's amazing how tender those birds are at mating time, considering how ferocious they can be when fighting.

I also added mute swan to my patch list this morning, with a pair of them flying low over the cemetery in the fog, which was quite dense as you can see in this photo of a parakeet with Charing Cross Hospital barely visible in the background:

Slightly later on, I also took these photos of a parakeet, which confirms what I had been thinking, that a pair was trying to settle in the cemetery:
