Pigeons are pests which have divided opinion for many years. Whilst some people view pigeons as their feathered friends, many others view them as nothing more that disease spreading ‘flying rats’.

Regardless of which side of the fence you fall, there can be little doubt regarding their potential to cause problems. Despite the fact that we have dealt with countless pigeon problems in the past, the recent story in the Independent below is a new one even for us!

Bangor University in a Flap

Bangor University has been forced to apologise to hundreds of students after their exams were disrupted – by pigeons. Pigeons

The university had to reschedule assessments for 224 law and modern languages students, whose exams were stopped because of the noise from a pair of pigeons that had found their way into the examination hall.

According to Seren, the Bangor student newspaper that first reported the story, the pigeons were already in the hall when students took their seats on Tuesday morning. The exams were not postponed until around 45 minutes later, however, despite invigilators being aware of the birds.

One student told Seren: “There were two pigeons that somehow got in and they were on top of the organs in the back of the room and would not just shut up.”

It is unclear how the pigeons entered the hall, though they may have flown through some missing windows near the roof.
