Wes Charnock spotted this hot pink pigeon outside St Mary’s Church in Stockport and took pics to post online and find out why it is so coloured.
A pink pigeon spotted in Stockport has been baffling passersby.
The brightly coloured bird was found this afternoon outside St Mary’s Church in the town centre.
It appears to have had half its feathers dyed an impressive hot pink colour – but the reason behind it is a mystery.
Wes Charnock, 33, spotted the bird as he walked through Stockport town centre this afternoon with his sons.
He posted pictures of it online – with people speculating it could have been dyed to be released at a wedding could be a racing pigeon given a distinctive marking by its owner.

Passer-by Wes told the MEN: “I was just walking through Stockport town centre with my kids to buy sausage rolls when we spotted it and they wanted to feed it so it could have something for tea.
“It didn’t walk away from us like most pigeons do, it was happy to stand a few feet away.
“It did seem tired, so I thought it might have been in a race but I’ve never seen a pigeon dyed pink before.
“I posted pictures online to see what people thought, and they have been suggesting it was used in a wedding or is a racing pigeon.
