A racing pigeon from East Lothian that was presumed dead has made a miraculous recovery after being found by a retired environmentalist.
Graham White, of Coldstream, picked up the bird after he noticed it by the side of the A1 near Cove.
“The bird made no effort to escape as I walked up to it, and only flutterd a little as I picked it up,” he said.
“It was clear that this was a racing pigeon; it carried a bright yellow ring from the Scottish Racing Union.”
A Google search of the ring number found the bird’s owner, Ben Veitch, a young fancier from East Saltoun.
