Feral pigeons, Belfast
Feral pigeons, Belfast
Feral pigeons are common in the centre of Belfast, feeding on the detritus of human society. In the days before the Westlink and the M3, when grain and feed lorries were common in the city centre, they found rich pickings from spilled goods (off the back of a lorry). This group is close to the Queen’s Bridge.
