Last month the Fire Service kindly helped the GSPCA rescue a trapped wood pigeon.

Michelle Champion GSPCA Warden who was called to the scene said “The pigeon was stuck between a window and safety glass at the Royal Terrace.”

“It kept trying to move but was absolutely stuck.”

“I pressed all the buttons on the front door to the building and eventually found someone to let me upstairs but there was no one in any one of the three apartments that I worked out it must belong to.”
