Yup it is and you missed pigeons out Cammomile - they can wreak stuff too!

Oh yes, forgot about the pigeons. We have one on the roof right now and its cooing down the chimney very loudly.

We have two which seem to have taken up residence in the garden roosting in a birch tree, I am seriously tempted to lay down alcohol soaked grain for them there blasted big feet do so much damage.

Then they'll make an even bigger drunken mess staggering all over the garden - or will it do for them?

26 Jun, 2013


If you follow the alcoholic grain route you then kill the birds, hang them up and eat them :-) Not really planning to do this...
