My stupid neighbor let some of his Barbary Doves out to "home" and they just
flew away.
I think he was just using it as an excuse to reduce the numbers in an
overstocked aviary, a perennial problem for anyone who keeps them.
Sounds like somebody in Newport is doing the same.

Cheers Jeff.

But do these birds home like Rock Doves? If not then they'll simply
disperse. If they do then it ought to be possible to find who's responsible
by following them.

But there are no houses nearby, other than the "fishing village". It seems
odd they'd hang around there if they're returning home regularly.
