    Pigeon Found GB 10 S 62053 on aqua blue ring

    Post by Mel on Thu Aug 12, 2010 7:47 pm

    GB 10 S 62053 in Southampton. It is perky but very hungry and has been feeding wild bird seed and resting on the eaves for three days. It comes to our window sill (we have Venetian Blinds) and feeds on wild bird seed that we have put on the sill. It needs to return home in case of inclement weather.

    If the owner reads this please contact me. I would also like to know where this bird has flown from or was returning to.

    Thanks,

    Mel

    First of all, thanks for the welcome Rene. I have little interest in pigeons except that I feel sorry for this bird and its owner who both probably want to be reunited.
    It is too late to ring now (2335pm) but I appreciate the number you gave me and I shall ring and ask to speak to Mr.K.Hibbert tomorrow.

    Thanks again for your response and your kind help.

    Kind regards,

    Mel

    Having rung the gent you suggested Rene, I was told that he was away until Tuesday so I reported the found pigeon to the Royal Racing Pigeon club and was contacted yesterday by the owner who is arranging collection on Thursday (tomorrow)

    Thanks for your help and all's well that ends well and pigeon and owner are reunited.
    Although not into pigeon keeping myself, I do feed wild birds with best quality bird seed which is probably why this bird chose my home to stay!

    I am happy to say that the bird was bedraggled when it first landed on my window sill but now it is perky and bright eyed and with lovely coat of feathers. Indeed it is a very handsome bird.

    Take care and all the best and keep enjoying your interesting hobby.

    Kind regards, Mel
