Report a stray bird ...

You can view the current stray reports here...

Sometimes homing pigeons become disorientated during races, or they follow pigeons to other lofts. A stray pigeon will be weak and in need of water and food. If possible you should leave out clean water and food in the form of uncooked "pop-corn", oats, lentils, wild bird seed etc.  After a couple of days the pigeon will more than likely make it's own way home after resting.

Identifying a pigeon.

A racing pigeon will have one or possibly two rings on one of it's legs. If possible, make note of any numbers you find and post them in the form below. A typical ring number will be similar to IHU 12 S 12345 , If you happen to handle the pigeon, gently inspect it's wing feathers. Fanciers sometimes have contact information stamped on the larger wing feathers.
