Hi Pauline, Sorry to hear bout the injured bird; The Starlight Trust are a good place to start in finding help for the injured Pigeon, we have a forum member on here who rescues lots of pigeons and uses Starlight Trusts help medically and to rehabilitate them, he would usually answer this post but is away until later this afternoon so try this link to contact them either by phone, email or their social media pages HERES THE LINK Hope this helps, good luck and thanks for caring enough to ask for help.
post edit: If you are nearby the pigeon and as you say tame enough to capture, you could perhaps use a cardboard box (with sufficient air holes) or borrow a pet carrier like is used for small cats and dogs and place a clean duster or cloth in the base of it for the bird to give it some grip in the box and place a small bowl of water in there. The trust will probably arrange for someone to collect the pigeon from you.
Try (after 10am)...... Phone: 0844 586 8634
Good to hear Pauline, I'm sure it enjoys visiting your garden and all those treats and TLC, keep up the good work.
It’s fine, it’s the one with the fine wing-span and occasionally let’s me stroke it, an extra bonus. Thank you.
Well done helping Pauline with pic posting Wendy,
@ Pauline, lovely photo; hope the injured pigeon is doing better, looks like you've made friends with the birdie gang for life !
They look lovely looking birds, how did it go with the injured one?
Received this pic from Pauline via Messenger
I did send you a message Pauline as I couldn't see Pidge pic on our FB page!
I am Pauline Mangion and wearing green top. thank you.
That's a shame Pauline, hope it will be okay.
I was delighted to receive so much help and interest and want to thank you all. I tried 2 times to catch the pigeon but it evaded me, think it has lost trust now and has disappeared.
Hi Pauline, I use my pad almost all the time, and can attach photos from the ipad into a post. Make sure you have set the top box, in the settings and advanced options, to enhanced, and save it, click use rich formatting in the reply box, tap the white box where you want to add the photo and text, click the little TV on the top line of little icons, click browse and you should see options of where you have the photos on you iPad, pick the photo you want and it will appear in the middle box, if it is too big you can change the numbers in the two boxes above the photo, click insert. It should now be showing in the first white box, you can add text above or below the photo by tapping the box again. Good luck.
I should he said mine is an Apple ipad.
