Henry the Boathouse Pigeon

If anyone has been in The Island School boathouse within the last 2 months, then you have most definitely met our new pet pigeon, Henry. Henry came to us one day in June, with a tag on his foot and decided to hang out for a while. Little did we know, Henry was part of a group of pigeons racing from Lille, France to Leeds in the UK. For some reason Henry got a bit off track, a couple thousand miles off track, and ended up here! Henry’s amazing journey has already made into some local news stories in the UK and his fame is only continuing to grow. You can watch this video clip about Henry and read more about himĀ here.
