GUEST, Richard Bridge BS: Common Wood Pigeon (62* d) RE: BS: Common Wood Pigeon 04 Dec 10

I'm not sure if the pigeons here in Lower Coke are common, but I imagine so: most of the people are. The pigeons just love the crops in the adjoining farm fields, and stuff themselves until they need a long run up to be able to lumber into the air (after a bit of a run up) with all the grace of a swan - and if you don't know a swan is as ungainly anything I have ever seen when it is in the stage of being between water and air. As a result they are the size of Dornier bombers - and the payload is about the same.

If using an air rifle first remember that the higher powered ones available these days are almost as heavily regulated as rifles in terms of storage and use and lawfulness of discharge etc etc, and second, remember that what goes up also comes down and this applies to an airgun pellet too when you miss. Not clever in a housing estate. If you want to eat pigeon pie, put seed on the ground and lean out of an upstairs window and shoot downwards.
