You see signs in some towns and city centres requesting that people don't feed the pidgeons. You see it encourages them to be there. I spotted this lady feeding the feathered creatures by the river in Tonbridge this very morning; there she was in a world of her own (planet pidgeon possibly) throwing them clumps of bread. Didn't they all just love her as well. You can see that by the way they are clucking and squarking around her feet as they peck away at the bread on the ground. But what damage do they do to the nearby buildings and castle walls with their claws and beaks and droppings? Personally I don't much care for clucking things but I don't mind them that much either. Rats with wings some people call them. Is this just a harmless way to spend your Wednesday mornings or wouldn't it be better if we put them in a pie?!..
