Hi Bill and Jacqueline and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I agree with Wood Pigeon, though he does look rather odd, doesn't he.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.

It’s bill looks a bit deformed but I think it’s a juvenile Woodpigeon!
I dont think that's it doesn't match the pic is not the best but had rustic brown body with grey head not like a juvenile Woodpigeon the odd thing was the bill didn't look deformed looked very strait perfect more like a seagull bill im no expert on deformitys
Nope colour not right looks completely different

On looking at juvenile Woodpigeons again i do see some similarities so very possible it was the beak that completly threw me of as looked natural and colour of the bird seemed odd to
