Maybe it’s just my imagination, but such is the effect of pollution and the extinction of species and my general paranoia about it (we lost the blackbirds and sparrows 5 years or more ago, the cockney sparrows even). But I’ve got used to seeing a dozen or more pigeons on the rooftop opposite, seemingly smiling at me as if sharing a joke amongst themselves at my expense. But today there’s only one or two. Yesterday and the last few days, yes it was a heatwave and they might have been sheltering from the heat somewhere, but there were just a few pigeons.
This week we visited two restaurants and sat outside and where there are crumbs there are pigeons wobbling about under the seats, but both times not a single one even in a park. Is that strange or am I a paranoid like I said, seeing extinction everywhere. All I can say is pigeons come home now, a joke is a joke but this isn’t funny.
