Stock Dove - Opposite Millenium Stadium

I can't see why this isn't a stock dove. Strangely this is the 3rd occasion I have seen it at this location in the last two months. Today I photographed it with my phone from approx. half metre away. I thought it might be injured but as I went to pick it up it flew off strongly. Apologies for poor photos, it was 7.45am.

Looks good for Stock Dove to me too from these photos. Also looks like its had a bit too much Christmas Cheer...

A stock dove behaving like a feral pigeon. Quite bizzare! It was feeding on a gravel path on the west bank opposite Millenium stadium. I had to save it from being stood on by a jogger. Very strange
