EXTENT OF THE PIGEON PROBLEM IN BRIGG TOWN CENTRE


At a number of meetings in recent months Brigg town councillors have discussed the mess made by pigeons in the town centre, with droppings littering the paving on Wrawby Street and courtyards leading from the Old Courts Road car park to the shops.
We won't be surprised if this rather unsavoury topic features in discussions during Brigg Town Council's next meeting later this month.
This unusual picture was taken on Monday (February 11) from Bigby Street, looking across to one of the tallest buildings in the town centre and shows 30-plus pigeons that had gathered to enjoy the mid-morning winter sunshine.
Many more pigeons frequent the town centre, and we took this view to help highlight the extent of problem facing the powers-that-be.

Its the mess left by human vermin that bothers me most. Pigeons existed long before man arrived to ruin the planet .

Correct Paul...if human folk stopped dropping food litter, the pigeons would stop dropping poo litter...
