Mitcham: Epitomic Pigeon

More understated (and undervalued) in large.
Extra: Droplet-beaded cygnet

Went to see the cygnets and swans at Mitcham; it was pouring with rain, but I'd reached there so I persevered... I liked the reflections of the pigeons on the wet benches and steps, and the droplets on the ducks, but it was this pacing pigeon that I found most captivating. I've been looking at pigeons a lot recently, and find them quite charming in all their variety, hardiness, and ubiquity...
Was pleased to see the cygnets trying out their wings, and the blue and orange flash of a distant kingfisher also.
