Pigeon plight and bird impressions

A week or so ago I heard Jackie shouting at one of the local cats.  Basil was bothering a pigeon on the back garden.  Basil made it very clear that he was waiting for us to look away, and he’d be back.  Actually ‘bothering’ proved to be too mild a term – I found its feathers at the end of the garden a day later.

But how did Basil catch a pigeon?  Yesterday I think I found the answer – an impression on the window of the loft room.  It was tricky to photograph, see what you think.  Pigeon is my guess.  Flew straight into the window and fell, injured – and that’s when Basil appeared.  So now the blame transfers from Basil to me.

The head and body are fairly clear, the right wing sweeps up to the left, and a faint impression of the other wing is down and right.  Note remains of apple crop.

    You may need to brick up your windows Rob… At least you would save on window tax. Oh, hang on…

    p.s. I like it when Jackie features in your posts, they never fail to make me smile. How is she handling the celebrity of it all?
