Pigeon mystery deepens


This one won’t end up going down on a list of life’s greatest mysteries.

It is, though, a rather peculiar sight day after day.

For some reason, pigeons have marked off a very clear patch of the new Hastings bridge as their own. They apparently have no interest in spending time on any other part of the bridge. Rather, they congregate on the northbound side of the bridge on the arch about halfway up.
