Wood Pigeon for Dinner!

Wood Pigeons! After baulking - squeamish - at a flea-ridden and tapeworm-infested rabbit the other day I find I'm suddenly very taken with the blissful simplicity of woodies: no need to skin them and gut them; two swift swipes with a knife, a snip with the kitchen scissors, ten minutes under the grill - and they're done! Wonderful! Compared to the grisly wrestling match that is skinning a rabbit, plucking a soft cloud of blue-grey feathers in a sunny green field yesterday felt like a holiday.

Tasty, too.
