    Help - Found - S su01 DF

    Post by edinburghbird on Tue Aug 10, 2010 8:52 am

    Found a bird in my porch this morning with the above tag on one foot and a green tag on the other.

    I have to go out in an hour and have 2 cats keen to meet the bird.

    I've given it some water which it appreciated.

    What do I do now?

    It seems friendly!

    hi an welcome to the site edinburghbird thank you for reporting the bird the the ring tag should have some numbers after the SU01DF the 1st thing i suggest is to give it fresh water as you have done also if you have any wild bird seed or a little bit of rice then if you go on to this link http://www.shuonline.co.uk/strays/index.php and report the bird this is the only thing i can think of doing there may be a member on the site that might also be able in finding its owner once again thank you for reporting the bird

    Yours in sport

    Thanks Rene,

    I rang the number supplied on the post for reporting lost birds and finally got through to someone who could help (the number for the Scottish Society is wrong and needs updating!).

    The bird was fed and watered (ate lots and poo'd lots!) and then was picked up by a local guy who was going to return it to it's home in Dundee in due course. Apparently there had been a hard race at the weekend and lots of birds had gone missing.

    Don't think I'll be come a pidgeon fancier, but my little adventure with the bird made for an interesting day.

    Thanks for your help, without this forum, I doubt the bird would have got home so contentedly.
