The red brick-sided flank of a part of the Long Island College Hospital looms over the terrace, and glows near sunset. It is the haunt of pigeons, some of whom you can see wheeling overhead. I rather like pigeons. But I think I must number in the minority...I would not go so far as feeding them, but I think they are pretty birds and I don't get the flying rat thing. Sometimes a little kestrel harries them, and eats their young, perched on an antique television aerial across the road.
