Unfortunately, and i do mean unfortunately, it is illegal to kill homing pigeons or any other "domesticated" birds. It sounds to me that they are a damn pain in the backside and you could posibly have grounds to complain to the council if they are a nuisance. (not too mention the health risks of large amounts of pigeon crap - seriosly! Not trying to scare you, but its your garden and you didnt ask for it im sure.

It's ok Dunk i was'nt really going to shoot them but it does'nt stop me from thinking it. My neighbour even had the dam cheek to complain when she saw my cat catching one in our garden. Maybe thats what i should do, borrow half a dozen cats for 6 months and let them do the work. On a serious note, i might just get intouch with the council and see what they have to say. Thanks for your help and advice.

Sometimes bird cages require planning permission. I would call Planning dept. and Environmental health. If your neighbour is vaguely reasonable you could explain the problem, maybe suggesting an arrangement where you dont have wasing and birds out at the same time, I don't think anyone would think you haven't got a reason to be a bit irritated!
