Came home to find this beautiful almost pure white pigeon in our garden today, first time I've caught sight of it, it was happily eating away with the normal wood pigeons. Do you think it is an escapee from someones pigeon loft????

beautiful bird jayne and a fine job you've done of capturing it on camera, it's a bit hard to tell even when i enlarged the photo wether it has a ring on or not.

If its eyes were pink I'd have said an albino. Lovely bird though.

My first thought was as you said possibly an escapee from a pigeon loft, but a beautiful bird whatever it is.

Thanks for your input folks, the rest of the woodies were all here this morning but Snow White was noticeable in absence so I'm guessing the visit was just a one off. How lucky to be here to witness and capture the shot though hey!!
