One of the dangers of feeding any wild food is that it can carry lead shot from being previously shot at, but not killed.

I'm paying 80p for steel shot wood pigeons and can't get enough! Trouble is I'm in N/E Scotland.

I would have to agree, and to add, there are a number of diseases which the birds are still susceptible to, even if the pigeons have been frozen. It's often assumed that freezing eradicates any risk of disease, but this is sadly not the case.
