Dove Fight

This blog has featured fights between bulls and between pigs, but never expected to report a fight between two doves.  As it happened in the half-light of early morning, the more vigorous and feather-flying moments were beyond the Dairy's photographic ability, so the only picture worth publishing is this one, of the protagonists drawing breath before the next round.

We think it was two males: a third dove spent some time fluttering excitedly around the edge of the melee, but made no attempt to intervene.
