Hello all, am back in Bristol for my second term.

Just walking back from lectures my friend pointed out a pigeon walking next to us. He's obviously got a broken/injured wing and he is holding it at a very odd angle.
Tried to catch him but he just managed to fly away(at an angle).
Got some seed and tried to find him(he'd flown onto the top of a building) but no sign. Am going out again tonight and have half day today to try and find him.

Just by any remote chance if anyone just happens to be reading this and is in Bristol---please check out the bottom of Park Street/St Georges Road.

Any tips on finding a bird in pain and catching him.....and sneeking him on the train and tube(!) would be very much appreciated. He is not a young bird, I suspect he has been kicked or clipped by a car.

Oh Charlotte ...I wish I was closer because I would be there in a heart beat. I hope you manage to find him. Please let us know.

I am so sorry to hear about the little one, Charoltte. Disappointed
Please let us know if you are successful in catching him.

If he could reach top of the building, his injuries are not critical and he will recover. Maybe just supportive feeding is enough.

I am going out tomorrow to look for him. Ive put some seed out in the hope of attracting him. I know its a good sign to see him fly, but the extent at which the poor guy was holding his wing out was certainly not good. It was affecting his walking and when he flew away it was clear he was in difficulty. He was bright, and walking around and hopefully if I still can't catch him I will be able to keep an eye on him. I will certainly continue to accidentally (cough cough) spread feed where he hangs around.
