Trowbridge pigeon ladies

3 Mar

Pigeons have been making a huge nuisance of themself in Trowbridge. The council and locals alike were particularly unhappy when two lovely ladies of pensionable age decided to feed them on a daily basis.

This created a big problem with mess and they were politely asked to stop feeding the birds (there’s a song there somewhere).  Well, they didn’t and are now the proud owners of an ASBO.  I am not sure what my thoughts are about giving out an ASBO to two ladies for bird feeding, but it does raise an interesting point about encouragement of pigeons to town centres when councils and businesses alike spend large amounts of money on bird prevention systems such as Avishock that is RSPB approved too.

I would love to know your thoughts on the ASBO bird feeders though…
