Thank God for the internet
Just had an example of "whatever would I have done without the internet".
I found a pigeon grounded in my garden, under a telegraph wire which I suspect it flew into. When I picked it up, I saw it had a leg ring. I put it in a cardboard box indoors and googled "injured racing pigeon". Only needed to look at one website, it gave me instructions how to care for it, feed and water it, and how to contact the owner. Now it's on it's way home, and the man who came to collect it expects it to make a full recovery.
