Woodpigeon – 1949

Columba palumbus palumbus – Resident and common. 

Dix considered it more numerous in the north-east than elsewhere; this is true to-day, on account of the more wooded nature of this part.  Flocks of winter immigrants are not large, the year 1935 being an exception when thousands were seen in mid-October near Lawrenny (H.A.Gilbert).  Probably breeds regularly Caldey (Bertram Lloyd).
