We have a bit of a plague of white pigeons or doves around our and our neighbours gardens. These are a legacy from a family who were given a dozen of them as a wedding present, but when they moved they left the birds to fend for themselves.
Whilst they were looked after and fed there was no problem, but since the owners left they have become a real nuisance, always scavenging in our gardens with the associated mess, and effectively scaring the other smaller birds away when they descend in a white mass.
I'd be grateful if anyone could make suggestions as to how we might be able to selectively scare these birds off.
