Whilst in St Mark's Square you must be very careful if you are eating your luch as the thousands of pidgeons want it more than you. We were there on a very wet day but the weather could not keep the tourists away , nor the pidgeons. For the unwary the ultimate "pidgeon attack" could be the strongest memory you have of Venice. We could not believe what we saw and photographed.

    Golly, I think that is the most Pigeons I have seen in one place! They sound like a nuisance!
