Who needs rock when there is a handy telegraph pole to sit upon. A lovely shot Louis

I love this picture, Louis. The lines, the warm colours and the handsome bird.... I hope he might even get some dessert after his evening meal?
Louis: Thanks Astrid. He'll probably get his dessert. I heard his girlfriend calling kirrr-kirrr.
