Thread Name: BS: Common Wood Pigeon
Subject: RE: BS: Common Wood Pigeon
I have been told that an airgun is no use against wood pigeons.

Since I have a public road one side of my garden and a right of way the other, that stuffs the firearms option totally, even if I wanted to take out a licence (which I don't)

Taking up archery won't help: hunting bow and arrow is illegal in the UK, dammit.

So traps and netting are the only option. I had a flock of 200 of the damn things in the field opposite a few days ago.

I wouldn't bother about them but I do want to grow Brassicas!
