Pigeons staying out of the rain

In the heavy rain of a few days ago, we spotted these pigeons sheltering by an upstairs window at the back of a building that faces the A30 in Camberley.  Then we realised that some of the glass was missing, and the birds were sheltering inside the building as well as on the window ledge.P1120638bIn fact, the building looks totally decrepit.  Here it is on a rather sunnier day.

We imagine that the council has the power to acquire the building and demolish it.  (Almost anything would be better than to leave it in its current condition, which is scarcely a credit to the town.)  But uncertainty over the future of the London Road Block is a grand reason for doing nothing.
