This bird appeared in my garden tonight. I am used to having lots of Wood Pigeons but this looked and acted differently - and was ringed on both feet.
No interactions present.
Judging by the rings, this is a racing pigeon (probably an ex-racer now!)
I'm with you Sarah, My brother enters his in races and sometimes they get distracted and lose they way. They may come down because one of them was struck by a Peregrine and caused a panic in the others. Or just too tired to go on. Or maybe they just stop off for a fag aye? :)
