Pigeons damage and devour my Spis bladene Kale plant below.
I let this grand Kale from Denmark go to seed and treat it a a cottage garden plant -- the seeds moving it around the garden from year to year. But pigeons do a lot of damage.
I had no time to move the carcase this morning.
So three cheers for foxes... for organically controlling the pigeon pests.
And three cheers for crows.... for tidying up after the fox failed to eat up all of its breakfast.
The following morning everything was gone except the feathers. Well done badgers, foxes or crows, whoever enjoyed picking over the carcass.
