Hi,

I have a woodpigeon who is nesting under the eave, above my flat roof, hes actually managed to get into the roof, but not into the loft. I want to block the entrance so that he can't nest there in future, but not while they have young in the nest. I don't want to disturb the incase the abandon any young that might be there now.

Can any one advise me when the nest will be empty so I can seal it off without harming the birds.

Really appreiciate any advice. Ps These are the bigger green and greyish birds, not the city pigeons.

thanks
Andrew

Pigeons have unusually long breeding seasons I'm afraid and this species has been recorded breeding year round in the UK. So you probably can't be 100% certain but it would be unusual for young to be in the nest in teh middle of Winter. I'd wait till Oct/Nov if you want to fairly certain of causing no problems (unless you can inspect the nest earlier to check).
