Hotel staff have been dealing with a pair of unexpected guests this week.
The fluffy dove chicks pictured above are the latest visitors to The Bull and Swan in High Street St Martin’s, Stamford.
Head of maintenance Guy Shelton spotted their mother nesting in a tree. He said: “I could see she was nesting, but I thought she was on her own.
“A couple of days later our gardener was trimming the leaves and spotted two baby chicks. We’re delighted.”
The hotel has offered a free lunch for two for the person who picks the best names for the doves. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
