This hanging from Annie Downs' Hatched and Patched book should be in every caravan as a cushion or decoration!

Obviously I'm not crazy about pigeons - they cause a lot of damage in the garden and decimate my beans every year.  However, it did amuse us when this lady built her nest (nest is maybe rather a grand title for the pile of sticks thrown onto the old towel) just outside the back door and then proceeded to sit.
And sit, and sit.  As we banged in and out, held conversations on the doorstep, threw wellies into the porch, took things off and on the shelf, used the rakes and brooms stored in the corner, as the dogs came and went, - in fact the only time she'd fly off for a few seconds was when I'd try to hang the mop on the nail next to her and would miss it and hit the shelf instead.
Then, this morning, she seemed to be sitting higher than usual and we soon found out why:
Hmm.  Not the prettiest little fledglings - but at least their mother loves them!!
