had four wood pigeons squabbling on the shed roof this morning ,all over the bird seed,it was funny to watch as they slid off the roof due to the ice,and the fox I met at the front door looking for offerings,looked healthy and with cubs due in spring,she is a darling but runs the risk of humans in cars each night.

Advice needed.
