Precarious perch for passionate pigeons

OK, I know that pigeons are not strictly poultry – but they do have feathers, so are eminently well qualified to appear on this blog.

And this pair have definitely been “hard at it”, building what I hesitate to describe as “a nest” right outside our bathroom window.

Judging by the pile of twigs accumulating outside our back door, I can’t help thinking they’d have a better chance nesting at ground level…
