Spotted this Wood Pigeon a while ago. At first I couldn't work out whether it was soaking wet or had been in a fight.
In the end I decided it was soaking wet. My thought is that it had either been very vigorous in bathing in the waterfall on the pond or it had fallen in. Looking at it I think it had, as I have often seen, been standing on the raised edge of the pond to drink and lost its balance. Either way it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely.
