    Pigeon with Green ring - Wickford, Essex.

    Post by Neil on Tue Jun 08, 2010 3:30 pm

    A dark grey pigeon with white marking on its beak, speckled feathers and a GREEN leg ring keeps returning to the roofs in our road in Wickford, Essex. It first appeared on Saturday evening (5th June 2010) at about 8pm, and stayed in the same position throughout the night, during the storms. By the morning it had gone. However, it returned again to the same roofs at the same time on Sunday night, disappeared by Monday morning and returned again at around 8pm on Monday night.

    It doesn't appear to be injured as it is flying around, but stays put on the roofs at night. It's therefore virtually impossible for anyone to get near it, let alone capture it in order to read the information on the leg ring!

    If anyone has lost a pigeon that matches this description, please reply. We are concerned it's lost, won't be able to eat/drink or may be attacked by a predator. We put some food and water out, but it hasn't been over to our house or garden - Maybe because we have got a cat!

    Any advice much appreciated. Many thanks.
