Introduced by Jeffery Boswall The Public Life of the Street Pigeon
You see them here, you see them there;
You see street pigeons nearly everywhere!
A flock of street pigeons is not a chance collection of odd coloured gutter-snipes but of birds wonderfully suited to survive as our urban partners. This has enabled them to become probably the most successful birds in the world.
We have in turn developed pigeons tailor-made for speed, navigation, beauty and even freaks that you can roll along the ground like bowls - and some which fall from the sky in fits.

ROBBIE takes' a long look backwards to the years of eating innocence he remembers nostalgically and forward to developments that add up to an eating future we couldn't have imagined a short generation ago.
' You don't just eat a superlative meal, you take your time and savour gratefully its subtleties of aroma, texture, and above all flavour. I'm interested in food. Don't you too think that eating is one of life's greatest pleasures? ' ROBBIE is Fyfe Robertson
