as i've mentioned before Apollo and NewMissus own the balcony - but we have more than one Smile
on the west side of the flat our living room is all window at one end and looks out onto another balcony
recently we started putting food out there and after many weeks the visitors arrived
first it was blue tits and sparrows, then a robin, sometimes great tits, and the odd sighting of dunnock, wren, magpie...

and a woodpigeon, difficult to photograph as it/they are very wary, not sure how many visit we only ever see one up here
but plenty are about

and....
the collared doves, only one visits at a time now so i guess they're nesting nearby
west side story Rimg2410

the dove will make eye contact and is quite comfortable being watched as long as there are no sudden noises/movements
sunbathing

i'm sure Wisden (in my avatar) appreciates the virtual attention! Tickled Pink
he is just a baby in the pic...now he's a senior rattie "uncle" but he still loves fuss
