A PINK pigeon has been spotted in Bradford again.

Just a few days after the exotic coloured bird was seen in Lister Park in Manningham, it has now made its way to Heaton.

The pink bird was seen by an area of grassland in Heaton at around 8am today by Kelly Myers, who could see it from her window.

She said: “It was beautiful.

“I have never seen anything like it. I have never known that there were pink pigeons before.

“I was looking out of the window. I saw it flying around.

“I managed to get my phone out and take some pictures of it.”

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Photographer David Monteith spotted this bird in Lister Park, Manningham, and said he had never seen one before.

Mr Monteith speculated that it had been sprayed: "I met another couple and they said the same thing 'Has it been sprayed'. I could not say for sure but an amazing thing to see if it is true.

The pictured bird looks like the feral pigeons it is standing next to but there are pink pigeons in the wild. They live on Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and are very rare. There are said to be less than 500 of them left in the world.
