TRAFALGAR SQUARE would be quite a sight if all pigeons were this colour.

Vicci Wade from Charminster did a double take when she glanced out of her kitchen window this evening and saw the Barbie-pink bird in her garden.

The 25-year-old said: “I was cooking some dinner when I looked out of the window and saw this pink pigeon.

“I thought I was going nuts, so I pointed it out to my boyfriend. He couldn’t see it at first and said I was going mad. But then he saw it and thought he was going nuts, too.

“Luckily the lady who lives next door came out and said she had seen it around for a few days. I’m not sure what it is but it was absolutely beautiful.”
