No joke, this morning I was cycling to work as normal, when a pigeon literally fell out of the sky and landed about a foot in front of me, I had to do a proper double take, I thought the lorry coming the other way had thrown something at me but no it was a full size, plump, feathery and totally dead pigeon :-S
When I was a kid I always wondered why you don't see more dead birds dropping out of the sky or trees and I distinctly remember somebody (probably my teacher) explaining that they mostly go 'somewhere' to die, hedges, trees, etc. and I would never see a bird simply drop out of the sky.
Well it's been about 25 years but I can finally say I proved him wrong. hah!
