People attend this year’s #British Homing World Show. Attracting around 15,000 visitors. It is the year’s highlight for #pigeon fanciers, who come from all over the world to show their birds as part of a historic community celebration. #BHW #Blackpool, UK. 20th January 2024. pic.twitter.com/PODc3F1BQm

The final day of @official_rpra BHW Blackpool Pigeon Show of The Year 2024. Brilliant weekend away in England. Great to see everything kick back into normal after last year’s biosecurity measures due to the avian influenza spike. Until 2025… pic.twitter.com/g4B03sfjOa
