Topic: John Glen and Pigeons

I read somewhere that John Glen tried to insert a brief shot with a pigeon into each of his Bond films.
I know there were the nesting pigeons during the climb up St Cyrils in FYEO, one burst out of Khan's palace in OP (I think) and another during Bond's attack on Wade's fortress at the climax of TLD. But what were the other two? Is my memory failing again? And can we include the double-take pigeon in MR? Is there a pigeon in TSWLM? Glen edited both. I don't recall any in OHMSS.
Am I just going completely nuts about pigeons?

There are 'disturbed bird' scenes in both of John Glen's Timothy Dalton films. The LTK one is in the scene where Bond is fixing plastic explosives along the ledge of the window through which he will take a shot at Sanchez.

In AVTAK there's also the startled cat that runs down the stairs in Stacey Sutton's house. That was the variation of the startled pigeon in that film.

Richard Maibaum had a strong interest in monkeys, but thakfully some of his ideas were rejected.
