Found this egg on the grass. Totally with out a shell. Felt very rubbery. Probably a wood pigeon's.

Wood pidgeons are such nuisance birds.

wood pigeons have been put on the amber list as at risk. This is due to the reduction of their natural habitat of woodland. So they come into gardens. People also mix then up with stock doves that are slightly less plump minus the white neck markings.

Hubby hates then as they sit in the tree above the garage and seem to accurately target his open tool box. oh dear!

I wonder where the shell is!

The female will not have had enough calcium in her diet to make the shell.
