The bird landed very close but the other side of a fence so unreachable, and was with us for an hour and a half before we had to leave. I am concerned as I was there photographing peregrine falcons and it is not a safe place for a pigeon to hang around! Sadly I couldn't get behind the bird to see the whole number, but it was GB16S and has 29 on the left leg.

I assumed the desperate owner would rush up there and get it. We had no feed to tempt it closer and couldn't reach it; I was just trying to help.

Thank you for reporting your find, and your concern for one of fellow members of the RPRA, racing pigeons. just to let you know the ring number on the blue ring is this years young birds. If it was GB16S 24567 it would help to find the owner. But thank you for taking time to report the pigeon, and very nice photos.
