I've cleared out the pear tree bed of oxe eye daisies, added 4 trugbuckets full of FYM and one of grit, turned it all in, and planted the Roscoeas I got from long acre plants, and three blue poppies , and two hellebores that were hanging around. Its not the planting that takes the time, just the preparation of the soil.
Hope the pigeon gets a loving home soon. The man I knew that kept racing pigeons, said if they couldn't find their way home they were no use and for the chop.
If the owner doesn't want it back, maybe you could keep him. He seems happy at your place.
