Wood pigeon (Columba Palumbus)
The most common form of wild pigeon found in the British Isles, also called ringdove or cushat.
Pigeon's are at their best for eating in the late spring and summer, when they feed from seeds and grain. Their winter diet of acorns tends to make their flesh taste bitter. See our Recipe Section
