id like to home some of my ferals,they deserve a nice loft with all equipt on hand,they currently roost at night on an old crane and some at railway station,where they are not really welcome.it is ideally situated,south facing(ive found out),kinda out of the way so may be good for them,the only buildings adjecent to it is the church halls and the parish church,im off work this afternoon so im off out in a bit to have a look,i am positive it is the church who owns the land that its on,but i must try and trace the person who had the loft(the guy i spoke to at work thought the owner was deceased)im quite prepared to keep it up to a good standard and do all legal stuff etc,but may have to tell a little white lie and say that im having domestics in loft or id prob be refused

Well, if you can persuade any of your ferals to go live there, maybe you could catch 'em and put colored snap on bands on 'em, so they look like 'owned' pigeons at a casual glance
