A day spent with pigeons is a day well spent.
Today I spent the day at Wing and a Prayer wild bird and owl haven in Stratton Strawless, Norfolk, England. I’ve been volunteering at this bird haven since my year out in 2010/2011 and it’s one of my favourite places to be. From small beginnings rescuing and raising the occasional bird, it is now a registered charity, staffed by volunteers and funded entirely on donations. They take in all sorts of birds from baby songbirds to raptors to many many a pigeon, releasing the majority back into the wild if possible. My days there are usually spent with Eric the pineapple conure on my shoulder, Sally the sparrow in my hair and Cassidy the rook pecking at my shoes. You can check the haven out here.
