Then a very silly Woodpigeon turned up. It was obviously nest building and had a stick in it's mouth. It couldn't quite work out how to get some bread without putting the stick down, so ended up with no bread.
The most exciting bird to appear was a rook. It was massive (about twice the size of a Jackdaw), had very glossy black feathers and a grey face. A very imposing bird and not one I've seen on the bird table before.
