2,500 pigeons preen and strut their stuff at Blackpool’s ‘bird of the year’ show

They came in on a wing and a prayer.

Around 2,500 pigeons preened their feathers and strutted their stuff as their owners competed for ‘bird of the year’.

For the 40th year on the run the British Homing World Show was held at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens, with an estimated 25,000 breeders and fans travelling from across Europe to be at the event.

And the bird that came out on top was presented to adoring fans by breeder John Bell of Ayrshire – who lifted the trophy for the fifth time.
