One time I saw a pigeon sit on a lamp post in the day, and it lit up. It was like the best day ever.

Must be a council decision, ours cut them all off pretty early too... no idea of the specific time though. Seems about 1am.

Why would they go off when it's still dark?

Exactly 2minutes after the one in our storm porch.
At the minute they go off before 4 in the morning, because of the daylight.

They follow the sunset/sunrise schedule here

Some councils do switch them off in the early hours to stop light pollution (save money) because it interferes with star watchers etc.

So is it to save money or because of light pollution??

it's both and in some cases they will say it's to stop light pollution to save money.

There are arguments for and against. One could easily say that very few people benefit from lights being on in the middle of the night and its just not economically efficient. In terms of global warming, switching off the lights even for a few hours will do wonders for the environmental targets
