Ever since we started visiting Preuilly the pigeons have been nesting in the attics of the houses surrounding Place des Halles.
Well - from now on they have less choice, because the owner of this building has done something about it.
Last year we had pigeons nesting in the blanked window over our front door, but so far this year they have stayed away. If they come back, I guess I have to put "Operation Chook Wire" into effect.
Talking of bird's nests, the Redstarts have a second brood in the same nest they were using earlier this year. I first noticed them on Sunday evening by the amount of increased bird traffic and then on Monday evening by the cheeping of the chicks.
