This is the MAFF design Feral Pigeon Trap. I've lifted this one from Mr James Bateman's book, " Animal Traps and Trapping " (David & Charles. 1971) because I've been asked to provide such plans and am unable to locate my own, original MAFF blue prints just now.
If ye want to make a more portable design, simply follow the given instructions for the Bob Holes and incorperate those into a far smaller Cage, measuring round about two or three feet square by a foot tall. Think also about welded mesh, cable ties and collapsability. Maybe you can come up with something nice and light and which can be folded down for storage and transport?
Most importantly of all: Try to avoid using any such trap where the public may view or access them. Provide food and water for the captives. Despatch any catches swiftly and humanely. Then I'd strongly suggest tying them off inside black, plastic bags and incinerating the lot at high temprature.
All casual annecdote aside; These particular birds really are comparable to 'Flying Rats'. Please don't treat them casually
