My cat just loves them.
Visiting a friend in hull l noticed a racing pidgeon amongst the so called flying rat variety in the garden,naively taking a picture l wonders if l could repatriate it with the owner,believe it or not about an later l caught it,it was people friendly and tired. After googling lost racing pigeons and giving the ring details l was speaking to the owner in gateshead,a couple of hours later he turned up to collect the bird,nice to help.
Under utmost protest my neighbour when I lived in Doncaster had two racing birds take lodgings in his pigeon loft stuck out like sore thumbs amongst his tumblers
Any way it was agreed take the birds to Bridlington and release and hopefully find there way home
As to not making a spectacle of myself , rocked up in Fraisthorpe middle of nowhere to release aforementioned dick bods ...Stood like Mile Tyson let tem loose and they literally flew backwards such was the sea breeze ...Anyway a couple of circles and off they set back home
Following morning peeked out the bedroom window and you guessed it both back cooing as if nowt had happened
In the end collected by owners when we realised you could trace by the rings on their feet
THeir home was the North East and blown off course or decided on a holiday who knows ...Bird brains aint that daft
we had one turn up , the address and phone no. is usually stamped on the wing . the guy who answered said , frankly it's not a lot of use if it got lost , would i neck it ? i declined and let it go , it disappeared after a couple of days .
