Wood pigeon mating late December (1 Viewer)

It's been quite mild here recently, with temperates not far off 10 degrees C for a week or more. We're past the winter solstice so days are getting longer again.

I've just seen a pair of wood pigeons mating today (30 December). I thought this was quite early, what do you think? I read that they may begin nesting as early as February, but it still seems quite early. Maybe the behaviour was more pair bonding than actual breeding?
