A heads up for those living in the UK, it appears we may have our own triangle mystery.

Pidgeon fanciers are all in a flutter over a number of birds being released, but instead of homing, they are getting lost, or dissappearing !



Fanciers say they are experiencing "disastrous" and unprecedented losses in an area between North Yorkshire and Country Durham


Although small, the numbers are significant, and the article goes on to say those of us in the UK keep your eyes peeled, if you come across a pidgeon who is tagged there is a website.


www.homingpigeons.co.uk.




Probably no great mystery here, but something has got the pidgeons owners in a flap

Hmmm...........and right in amongst crop circle territory too, I wonder if there is a connection?

Durham Area...

A Durham Police spokeswoman said a number of calls came in around 9.45pm from concerned members of public who had seen a "bright light or a fire in the sky"



Yorkshire area...
Yorkshire crop circles

Very interesting - I think I'll keep my eye on this one.
S&F for the heads up mate - Cheers

Could it not be a more simple explanation? People with air rifles, natural predators, fast moving vehicles? An uncanny combination of many much more likely factors?

I think you're reaching there...

Homing pigeons have been used for a long time, and are considered extremely reliable. If there is enough of an uptick in missing pigeons for people to make a stink about it, I'd listen.

yeah i'm thinking they all ran into weather balloons while avoiding the swamp gas clouds.

From the article:


Mr Simpson added that it was impossible to say why flocks were going AWOL, but it could be down to freak weather patterns in the area or a mystery illness.


I will always pursue a more 'realistic' line of reasoning before jumping on the fantasy bandwagon.

'Bermuda triangle' ha, come on guys. Is it a homing pigeon specific one!?

I live in the Durham area and I every now and again I see what others would call "strange lights" and I've been saying for months that theirs been some weird bird behaviour. Glad others are noticing it now

I think its unlikey, given that they have made an article on it.

Pidgeon fancying is a way of life for some people (they love it up North), I have never heard of this before, which is why I thought it would be interesting to share.

Of course this isn't to say your point isn't valid, you may well be right.

For now anything is possible.

Ooops, I should have read your reply before responding to the one above lol.

But yeah, you're right, it is unlikely, allowise the article would have come from one of preservation, rather than mystery.

But like I said to the poster above you, anything is possible at this stage, I live down South, and there has been a lot about seagulls being shot and killed because they are too noisy.

Wonder if they have "birdnapped" them, and are training them to be soldier pidgeons, or spies ?

Your contribution is both noted, and valid, I like birds too, although not quite so much when they poop on me (I know its meant to be lucky, but so far I have gained no reward).

Sorry for taking so long to get back to this thread, I have been quite busy with house guests.

Should have put this in first, but was just too damn eager to reply to you all


One thing to add, about a week and a half ago, I had a pidgeon turn up outside my front door, I live in a low rise block of flats, and spent most of my day petrified to go out, I was a little worried,as there wasn't much rrom for maneuver, that the pidgeon amy become more distressed, and disorientated.

It took hours for the RSPCA to arrive, but thankfully they got the little guy out, and the woman agreed it would be difficult to move him without a net.

I felt so bad for him, hespent hours just smacking the window with his beak, for some reason he wouldn't just fly up and outthe way he came, the RSPCA woman said it was something to do with their keen eyesight.

Wonder if it has any connection to all the birds falling out of the sky.. Some kind of electromagnetic disturbance or something.. I reckon that's what the sky noise are too. There still going on.
