Dookit is also a term (also spelled doocot) that’s used at work to describe the individual mailboxes where messages and mail is kept. It’s an old scottish term that literally means ‘pigeonhole’ in old scots.

Interestingly enough the common or garden wood pigeon is called a cushat here in North Northumberland. Being on the Scottish border many words, and even the dialect, are very very similar. We have been here now 14 years and I always thought one of our pals was Scottish; one day I asked him whereabouts in Scotland he was from and he answered 15 or so miles north west of Belford - still in Northumberland!
