Report a Stray, Lost, Found or Injured Racing, Homing Pigeon

This is a champion racing pigeon. It should not be confused with the wild pigeons which frequent city buildings. Occasionally during the racing season even champions get lost and may require assistance.

All racing and fancy pigeons carry a hard plastic ring on their leg which identifies its owner. The first few letters on the ring indicates the issuing organisation, the next two numbers will identify its year of birth, the remaining letter and numbers will identify its registered owner.

A racing pigeon may carry two rings one on each leg. One will either be a rubber band ring or an electronic timing tag, a chip ring, these are used for timing the pigeon when it arrives back at its loft from a race.
Please do not report pigeons that are not in your possession. Owners cannot arrange to collect pigeons that are roaming or flying around your home or garden. You must catch the pigeon first. When you have the pigeon in your possession read and write down carefully all the letters and numbers on the plastic coloured ring.
Before reporting a stray pigeon to any of the listed organisations, first open the pigeons wing and check if the owners name or telephone number has been ink stamped on the underside of its flight feathers, also check the ID tags on its legs for mobile telephone contact details. If so then you can contact the owner direct.
