A lovely little racing pigeon stopped in my garden on Sunday.As we were sitting outside enjoying it was around the table,so I was able to pick it up.We put it in a cat carrying box with food and water.Looking online I read that after 24 hours rest I should release it so it could continue it's journey home to Heathrow. So expecting a Born Free moment I took it into the garden on Monday morning and launched it into the sky.It flew one circuit around my small paddock and came back,landing in a tree.It is still here and I need to catch it. I have a landing net and after one pathetic attempt to catch him as soon as he sees the net he stays out of reach. I have a feeling the owner will neck it if he comes to collect it,but despite this a 12 bore solution would not be appropriate. Any thoughts?
