A hunt is on to find the owner of a racing pigeon which has settled in a back garden in Harrogate.
The bird, identifiable by its leg band, has landed on the roof of a house in Rosset Holt Grove and has stayed there all day.
House owner John Copeland is keen to find the bird’s owners and is hopeful that someone who knows something about racing pigeons could get in touch.
“It might have come down late yesterday (Wednesday) but its been here most of the day,” he said.
“It’s sitting on the roof, it has come down into the garden but flown off again.
“My neighbour is a bit of an expert and the bird has rings on its legs, which he says are indicative that it’s a racing pigeon.”
Anyone who knows where the bird may have come from or who can help can call John Copeland on 01423 560019.
