Is it possible that your suburb is graced with a pigeon racer who lets his flock out  for some exercise?

Good morning all – An issue that has intrigued me for some time now is the habit of these birds to congregate in large groups adopting a circular (roughly) flight path within a relatively narrow bandwidth which continues for what seems to be a long time. I have noted this occurs at about the same time each day as I do my morning stroll through Lyneham.
Could anyone throw any light on this characteristic of the maligned feral pigeon which now carries the much more respected name of Rock Dove.
