National Pigeon Association GB

I've found a fancy pigeon……what should I do?

If you find a ‘lost’ fancy pigeon and it will not fly away, please give it some food and water. Wild bird seed or brown rice will be fine, along with an old margarine tub for water. Pigeons can be contained in a cat box or dog crate or even a cardboard box with holes in for ventilation.

If you have managed to catch the pigeon and put it into a box or other similar container with some food and water, check the ring number and phone, e mail of fill in the form on the web site which corresponds to the prefix letter on the ring. ie; GB NEHU SU NPA etc.

Please do not report any pigeons that are just in the garden or sitting on a fence or a shed as no one can trace the owner of the pigeons without the ring number.

After the relevant Association has contacted the owner, they will contact you and arrange collection.

The Prefixes listed here are the main associations in the United Kingdom including the ring prefixes and contact details on the list below.

The NPA cannot find owners of any pigeons other than those that have NPA on the ring, we do not have any access to any other associations records.
