There were a huge number of pigeons in the town, especially around the various squares where they can obviously get food dropped on the floor. At times they could be quite a nuisance as they were rather bold, scurrying under tables for crumbs, or flying onto tables when bars and cafes were not so busy. After a while I noticed that the white doves in the fountain at the entrance to the square facing the marina had disappeared. All was explained when reading the local free English paper I saw that the town council had paid a firm to get rid of the problem by flying trained falcons and other birds of prey through the town very early in the mornings to discourage the birds. It worked!
Above is the fountain minus doves or pigeons.
