Rats is right

When I first came to Belfast, many of my clients had probems with "vermin" moving along the roofspaces over terraced houses - which more often than not were feral pigeons.

Have had a rock dove record rejected (no photo) on the basis that there were feral pigeons nearby on the cliffs at the time and they interbreed easily, leading to ID problems.

Not keen on them, but it would be strange not to have them around.
