Feeding the doves of St. Mary's College, South Street, St. Andrews
Feeding the doves of St. Mary's College, South Street, St. Andrews
Sadly this is a sight you are unlikely to ever see again. The quadrangle of St. Mary's College used to be home to a large number of doves, which were fed by the college. The doves were long regarded as the mascot of the College. This photograph shows a gentleman in a smart uniform feeding them. Look closely and you will see some opportunistic pigeons amongst the doves. The doves are no longer here. The official website has a brief note that the doves had "to be removed for health reasons". It doesn't explain whether this was for the health of the doves, or the students and staff, nor where the doves were removed to. This seems to have happened about 1994. However we can probably assume that the pigeons are still around.
