Hi all,
So many dead birds suggest to me more a sick mind somewhere in the school area 
than an accidental poisoning. The obvious - and usual - suspects would be local 
youths or an aggrieved householder upset by the birds' noise or feeding (say, 
on the householder's trees). The latter may possibly be traced through past 
complaints about the birds.
As an inappropriate antidote to my earnestness - and to cloying eulogies to 
nature - may I commend to all the old Tom Lehrer song, Poisoning Pigeons in the 
The golden mean lies in between.
Cheers from soggy Ingham,
Tony Ashton
