Eats shoots and leaves and buds and flowers

A woodpigeon feasting on cherry flowers. I have seen them in the last few weeks eating cotoneaster berries and poplar buds (or catkins, hard to say). Come May, they will take advantage of Horse Chestnut flowers too. The one below has stretched all she could to strip bare two inflorescences, they are quite tricky to reach, but woodpigeons are not scared to stretch their necks and almost hanging upside down to reach the best bits!
