Wood Pigeon with broken wing help.


I have a young Wood Pigeon with what looks like a broken wing, it was wandering round the street.  I managed to shepherd it into the garden and it is happily living in the dogs kennel. Is there anyone in the Blackpool area that can fix a broken wing?

Dont know who to contact so any advice would be welcome.


  • Hi BW,    well done for trying to rescue this Wood Pigeon and keep it safe;   if it has a broken wing it may be beyond help to get it back to the wild, however, you could try these links where they might be able to advise you better;

    LINK 1  (which is a Pigeon rescue Facebook page)     LINK 2  Starlight Trust Facebook page  and   LINK 3  Help Wildlife website - where you can enter your details, area, etc, to get help.
