The hat is a fine idea for a pigeon bloke, Richard.
Chris: Use the natural materials, in this case the local birds..

This is delightful. I often wonder how he gets away with feeding pigeons in Bath when no one else can
Chris: Isn't it strange, this is normally seen as anti social

The boys have realy fun - I saw some pigeon men - in London at St. Paul's Cathedral and in Paris at Notre- Dame. We are surely in Bath nr. the Abbey Church.
Chris: Yes we are Philine, he is always by the Collonades in front of the Abbey
Souires !!!
Merci pour ce sourire du matin !
Chris: You are very welcome Claudine
A pigeon whisperer, eh? I once came across a guy in the lake district who was doing the same thing with all the local birds, which didn't include pigeons, but sparrows, tits, finches, etc. He had a daily pitch out in the country outside of Keswick.
Chris: Interesting Tom. I've personally never experienced before what this man does with birds

I always feel slightly suspicious of this chap lurking under the arch with his pigeons. Fine shot though.
Chris: He is a feature of Bath Mike, I'd miss him if he left
Great expressions on the boys faces. Really fun shot.
Chris: Thank you kindly Mary
The lad in the middle looks a bit unsure about the whole thing.
Chris: It's all good clean (we hope) fun Brian

Hmmm - not sure I'd want pigeons up so close and personal.
Chris: I doubt if everybody does Anne..

That must have been a huge pigeon for him to get that feather. I'm surprised he is tolerated as he obviously encourages pigeons.
Chris: Strange isn't it; the pigeons love him
That's a great find to shoot. Look at the smiles on the boys!!!
Chris: A new experience for them!
